About the Event
Out-of-the-box thinking peaks in the twenties brain, says science. Developments on the musical frontlines are moving fast, both artistically and technologically, while 20th-century taboos (tonality!) are no longer an issue. The result: a steaming cocktail of colorful and diverse music, which is also accessible to a large audience. With this concert experience designed by themselves, the twenty-somethings point the way to the future.
Twenty young Dutch composers make themselves heard during a special concert experience designed by them. Developments on the musical front-lines are moving fast, both artistically and technologically. Composers are finding new ways to appeal to a larger audience, 20th-century 'taboos' such as tonality are no longer an issue, there is again plenty of flirting with old traditions and at the same time the use of electronics is becoming more and more mainstream. Different styles and characters, from neoromantic to indie rock on piano or jazzy electronics, pass by at a rapid pace.
For an hour, a vivid portrait of music today unfolds, brought by four great young musicians with hypnotic film images by Bowie Verschuuren and directing advice from Jos van Kan.
