Tussenruimte (The Space In Between)


New concert series focused on the future

Sep 24

Space, and how we relate to it, is at the centre of this concert. Allow yourself to get carried away by The Space In Between, in which composers provide a new interpretation of physical and mental space.

A universe of unlimited possibilities and different worlds aligning. Here, the most important 20th century composers are placed alongside work by new makers, who are stepping forward to a brand-new future from this Space In Between.

The first edition of this new programme young composers Lise Morrison and Thanasis Deligiannis meet composer/conductor Oliver Knussen. ‘Olly’ Knussen, a composer with a rich oeuvre characterised by sophistication and detailing, was closely related to Asko|Schönberg until his passing in 2018. Bas Wiegers, het Muziekgebouw’s Zielsverwant (Soul Mate) this season, knew Knussen well and will connect his music to the young composers through this programme. Robert Zuidam will write a new work especially for this event.

Lise Morrison and Thanasis Deligiannasis’ works have been made possible thanks to the support of the Performing Arts Fund NL.
