IEMA-Ensemble 2023/24

The youth division of the German Ensemble Modern is playing twice during Gaudeamus Festival 2024. This concert in the special acoustics of the Nicolaïkerk will include the piece Clouds by Yixie Shen, which this nominee for the Gaudeamus Award 2024 wrote especially for a concert by IEMA-Ensemble 2023/24 in a church in France. The sound that echoed around thanks to the church’s impressive natural reverberation reminded her of clouds, and that formed the starting point for the piece.

This concert is made possible through collaboration with the Ulysses Network and is financially supported by the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
