Dialogues Festival 2020

Thursday, February 27, 2020
6.00 pm

Contemporary Ensemble performs new work by Edinburgh composers, in the context of key landmarks in contemporary music.
This concert is part of the Reid School of Music's annual Dialogues Festival of new music: 'How to do Nothing'.

Contemporary Ensemble goes 'Wandelweiser'.


Where shall we go? Do we have to hurry? Or can we just listen?

Wandelweiser ('change signpost') marks a change in direction for music, steered by a loose collection of composers and performers linked to the Dutch flautist and composer, Antoine Beuger and the Swiss composer Jürg Frey, whose work forms the core of this programme.
