Ensemble Proton Bern goes on tour “in the wonderful month of May” and in our luggage we’ve got Russian music for Festival in St. Petersburg and new works by Samuel Andreyev for Radio France in Paris, as well as the heavy-hitter from Switzerland, the new version of “Réseaux” by Hanspeter Kyburz.

We’re excited to be able to compare this version with the previous, somewhat shorter one that we performed in Berne in April 2012. Shortly before we set off for Russia, we look forward to this colourfully blooming bouquet of new music – fasten your seatbelts!
