During the coming week the Italian city Venice will be transformed into a prestigious stage for contemporary music and the canals of the floating city will be filled with music, sound and art.
Under the theme +Extreme- the Biennale Musica in Venice will present some of the significant actors in the field of contemporary music from October 6 to 13, 2012. The title juxtaposes the musical minimalisms and maximalisms of our times. It will be a week where you only can expect the extremes - and nothing in between.
Edition·S–music¬sound¬art is very proud to have our young Danish composer Rune Glerup – not once, but twice – on this year’s programme. October 10, the Teatro Piccolo Arsenale will open its doors for the audience to experience Rune’s piece Dust Encapsulated #2 (2009) performed by Ex Novo Ensemble. In addition to that, Rune’s piece Concerto for piano and orchestra (2010) will be performed by Radio-Sinfonieorchestra Stuttgard des SWR in the heart of the monumental area of the Arsenale in the great Teatro alle Tese. Both performances are Italian premieres.
This happens only a week after Rune’s great premiere of his work Examples of Dust (2012) at Centre Pompidou in Paris performed by the prestigious Ensemble Intercontemporain.
