Balkan Tour

Tuesday 9. April 2019, 12.00 am

Thursday 18. April 2019, 12.00 am

The first of our overseas tours takes us to the Balkan under the banner of "nova muzika!" and at the invitation of Sarajevo festival SONEMUS. Together with local musicians we play works from Switzerland and Bosnia as part of living cultural exchange! Furthermore we will give workshops at the local Academy of Music. Once again we will play the epic masterpiece Les Abîmes Hallucinés by Antonie Chessex together with Jérôme Noetinger. We are overjoyed to also have been invited to play in Novi Sad and Belgrade to play this momentous work, resulting in a 10-day tour. The SONEMUS festival in Sarajevo has a long history with local musicians and organisers focussing on works, which are played together by Bosnian and Swiss musicians. Cultural transfer is cultural exchange. In addition, the concert in Belgrade will be broadcast live on the radio.

Works and world premieres by Antoine Chessex (*1980), Ezko Kikoutchi (*1968), Dino Rešidbegović (*1975), Simon Steen-Andersen (*1976), Ališer Sijaric (*1969) among others.
