Ensemble Modern in Tongyeong

At the Tongyeong Music Festival

In April 2023, Ensemble Modern travels to take up a one-week residency at the Tongyeong International Music Festival. There, it will rehearse three programmes, some of them including local musicians too, to be presented at the Tongyeong Concert Hall. Apart from a world premiere by the South Korean composer Hyun-Joon Choi, works by the composer-in-residence Ondřej Adámek as well as a celebration of György Ligeti’s 100[sup]th[/sup]birthday are the focus of the residency. Under the baton of Tito Ceccherini, Ensemble Modern will perform Ligeti’s ›Aventures/Nouvelles Aventures‹ together with the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, alongside existing and specially commissioned arrangements of his Piano Études by Hans Abrahamsen, Johannes Schöllhorn and Chris Paul Harman.
