On the opening night, Asko|Schönberg, the Netherlands’ leading ensemble for new music, traditionally plays music by unorthodox minds, who know how to break free from conventions and expectations. They play with our perception of time, challenge us to embrace microtonal intervals and integrate non-musical sounds into their dramaturgy.
Asko|Schönberg plays twice this evening. In this concert, they will play music by jury member for the Gaudeamus Award 2023, Chaya Czernowin and by two nominees for the Award, Saad Haddad and Uri Kochavi.
Chaya Czernowin - Fast Darkness III
Saad Haddad - Aruah
Uri Kochavi - Bricolage
Gregory Charette - conductor
