Due to the safety measures surrounding the Covid-19 virus, Synthesis in the Stadsklooster cannot take place tonight. All ticket buyers have received an email about this. A new date is being sought for a new edition of Synthese.
Synthese is on a search for the common ground between classical music, electronics and pop. Each time on a different location in Utrecht, Synthese takes you on a musical adventure discovering old and new surprising sounds.
Synthese #2 takes over the Antonius church in Lombok for one night to put the French composer Olivier Messiaen in a new light. The evening will be opened by the saxaphone player Laura Agnusdei, this will be followed by a performance of Messiaens organ work L’ascenscion by Francesca Ajossa. The Japanese vocalist Hatis Noit closeS the evening with an intimate show.
Each one of them has a strong and idiosyncratic voice; pioneers of this age brought together with Messiaen, one of the most influential composers of the past century. Someone who has not only shaped classical music, but still inspires the pop icons of today.
