Michela Amici

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Gaudeamus is not merely a festival, but every year it also gives young composers the opportunity to write new work for prominent musicians and thus to place themselves in the spotlight. Every year includes a composition assignment in collaboration with the Grachtenfestival and November Music. This year, composers were given the chance to write a new work for harpist Michela Amici, who plays both the triple harp and the pedal harp. Her repertoire ranges from Baroque music to brand-new contemporary music. She loves theatrical and spatial aspects in music, and her inspiration often lies in architecture and scenography.
