Asko|Schönberg, one of Holland’s leading ensembles in new music, traditionally opens Gaudeamus Festival. Under the inspiring leadership of conductor Clark Rundell, they bring a programme that spans generations and continents. This includes the crazy Ilolli pop – something between cartoon music, free jazz and contemporary classical music – performed by Gaudeamus Award 2022-nominee Alex Paxton, and The Color Yellow by jury member Huang Ruo, with a solo role for the renowned sheng-player Wu Wei.
