KLANG announces festival programme

KLANG - Copenhagen Avantgarde Music Festival has announced the full programme of this year’s festival. During 8 days, the festival presents more than 20 concerts and varied programmes including a number of Edition·S composers.

Lars Kynde joins forces with the artist collective ILLUTRON in the creation of the piece "Pulsing Pipe". The piece is written for the unusual instrumentation of three pulsejet motors and bagpipe. The site specific piece can be experienced June 11th in Fælledparken. 

Sunday June 12th a new piece by Li-Ying Wu will be premiered at a Talkshowconcert where Torben Sangild will guide the audience through the concert.

A brand new piece by Nicolai Worsaae will be premiered by the British Distractfold Ensemble. The piece is written for clarinet, melodica, violin and guitar and will be performed at a concert Tuesday June 14th.

Three pieces by Jexper Holmen will be performed at a café concert with the Duo Askou//Andersen featuring the mezzo-soprano Tuva Semmingsen Wednesday June 15th. This includes the premiere of a selection of his “Årstidssange.”

New music usually doesn’t play a big part in the repertoire of children in music schools. Non-the less, over the past few months, the children at the Suzuki Institute in Copenhagen have been playing music by modern and contemporary composers. The result is a concert on Thursday June 16th with among others Simon Steen-Andersen'“Study for String Instrument no. 2”.

Martin Stauning’s piece “Welkende Schalen” will be performed by the Nordic String Quartet Friday June 17th at a concert presenting no less than three different string quartets. “Welkende Schalen” was written in 2015 to be performed at the Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition. At the same concert, Axel Borup-Jørgensen's "Torso" is performed by Mivos String Quartet.
