Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain

Tuesday 4. October 2022, 7.30 pm


Sylvie Courvoisier (*1968)

Rouages (for Jean Tinguely)

Alex Paxton (*1990)

Neues Werk

The Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain invites two artists straddling the worlds of classical music and contemporary jazz: Sylvie Courvoisier, a Swiss pianist and composer based in New York, and Alex Paxton, a promising young English composer and trombonist.
Between writing and improvisation, groove and psychedelia, NEC will have the pleasure of commissioning and producing two promising creations for an explosive concert.

Proton Proudly Presents: Ensemble Proton Bern invites one of its collegiate ensembles for contemporary music from another city to come play in Bern: the renowned Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain from La Chaux-de-Fonds gladly accepted this offer and presents a world premiere on Ensemble Proton 'home turf' by Swiss French composer, Sylvie Courvoisier, giving Bernese audiences an opportunity to discover sounds other than the 'local fare'. As part of the deal, Ensemble Proton will perform in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 2023.
