Giving young talent a chance to experiment and challenge themselves: that is not only what Gaudeamus is committed to, but also IEMA. This youth project by the influential German Ensemble Modern allows young musicians to broaden their horizons and gain experience with today’s music. And don’t hesitate to take that last description literally, as 4 of the 5 pieces played will not premiere until July 2023!
The ensemble plays twice this evening. In this concert, they will play works by this year’s nominee for the Gaudeamus Award, Artun Çekem, last year’s nominee, Alex Paxton, as well as Adrian Mocanu, one of the composers who participated in a Composer’s Journey of the European Ulysses Network, leading to performances during the impuls Festival in Graz, Gaudeamus and Frankfurt/Main.
Artun Çekem - This Person Does Not Exist
Adrian Mocanu - Kiovia: esplorazioni delle tenebre
Alex Paxton - Scrunchy Touch Sweetly to Fall (Kite n Finger run)
