Due to the health crisis, the concerts on 16 October 2020 (Donaueschingen Festival, Germany), 10 november (Chapelle Corneille, Rouen), 12 november (Maison de la Radio – studio 104), 14 november 2020 (Bois-le-Duc, Netherlands) and 20 November 2020 (Munich Cultural Foundation, Germany) are unfortunately cancelled.

 

Nothing is beyond accentus!
Even though the intonation challenges of Schoenberg’s first a cappella work make it a rarity on the concert calendar, accentus has already given several acclaimed performances, as it has of Brahms’ Fest-und Gedenksprüche and the deeply pious Drei Motetten. Always prompt to champion contemporary music, accentus has also commissioned two original works by two women composers: Kaija Saariaho and Sivan Eldar.

1h10 without interval
