Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, Kleine Zaal

Twenty young Dutch composers make themselves heard during a special concert experience designed by them. Developments on the musical front-lines are moving fast, both artistically and technologically. Composers are finding new ways to appeal to a larger audience, 20th-century 'taboos' such as tonality are no longer an issue, there is again plenty of flirting with old traditions and at the same time the use of electronics is becoming more and more mainstream. Different styles and characters, from neoromantic to indie rock on piano or jazzy electronics, pass by at a rapid pace.

For an hour, a vivid portrait of music today unfolds, brought by four great young musicians with hypnotic film images by Bowie Verschuuren and directing advice from Jos van Kan.

Alexandre Kordzaia
Arjan Linker
Boris Bezemer
