European creations for ensemble and soloists

Renowned for their energetic and enthusiastic support of musical creation, the Brussels-based ensemble Sturm und Klang and its musical director Thomas Van Haeperen have commissioned three new works for ensemble from composers Jean-Luc Darbellay (CH), Denis Ivanidze (BE) (solo bassoon: Mavroudes Troullos), and Jörg-Peter Mittmann (DE). The ink is still fresh, and the scores hint at three personal ways of sculpting musical time and exploring the expressive possibilities of mixed timbres from string quintet, wind quintet, and harp.

Also on the program for this concert (later performed in Detmold and Berne), a work by Olli Virtaperko, a Finnish composer, and miniatures (*) by Swiss composers Pierre-André Bovey, Ursula Gut, Hans Eugen Frischknecht, and Markus Hofer.
