Independent and yet connected. You bet!
4 strings, 5 horns, 7 nationalities, 9 quirky characters, founded 10 years ago in Amsterdam. That's the Intercontinental Ensemble in a few figures. But if a picture says more than a 1000 words, then their music sounds like more than a 1000 pictures. The adventurousness and the infectious joy of this ensemble always tastes like more, whether you are a music expert or if it is your first time.
Do you notice a difference when music is written by a man or a woman? Do you hear your star sign reflected in music? Is music higher math or just a sound?
These are questions that don't need an answer, but they do make you think.
This show is presented by works of Bianca Bongers, Aregnaz Martirosyan, Sarah Neutkens, Apollonio Maiello and Karlheinz Stockhausen's Tierkreis.
