This concert presents the premieres of those works that originated in connection with the composers’ workshop. Seven young composers worked in dialog with one another and with the musicians in group and individual phases of work in order to explore their own musical language while subjecting the music to a process of reformulating, shortening, supplementing, and discarding. As always at premieres, we do not know what awaits the audience – but that just makes it all the more exciting. Come and experience the moment when this music first sees the light of day.
Ghetto Classics is the flagship programme of the Art of Music Foundation. It is a community programme that involves over 300 children in Korogocho – one of Kenya’s biggest slums that is home to about 300,000 urban poor and over 600 more children in 10 satellite areas around Nairobi.
Johannes Fleischmann is proud to support this great cause and will be giving two workshops on Monday, January 18th.
