Musikene - San Sebastián 2023

A small delegation of the ensemble spent a few days in Donostia-San Sebastián in the Basque Country at the end of April in order to present – together with a group of up-and-coming young composers from the Musikene University of Music – the results of a joint work-phase lasting several months.

The project started in November 2022 with an initial preparatory Zoom meeting of our musicians and the Musikene master students. At the beginning of the year, individual working sessions with the young composers took place, along with instrument presentations (heckelphone and contraforte) in Vienna and finally, in April, intensive rehearsals of all pieces started in San Sebastián. In parallel to the rehearsals, our ensemble members also taught master classes in the subject for the respective instruments.

The collaboration came to a worthy conclusion in the form of a public concert, where the students' five pieces were premiered under the musical direction of Arturo Tamayo.
