SALT New Music Festival and Symposium

Tuesday, May 8 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pm

The Schola Heidelberg and Ensemble Aisthesis visit Victoria to present works by Canadian composers. This is part of the 2018 SALT New Music Festival and Symposium.

The KlangForum Heidelberg is where two very distinctive formations pool their interpretive élan and their astounding virtuosity: the voices of the School Heidelberg and the instrumentalists of the ensemble aesthesis. The two ensembles for contemporary and ancient music thrill their audiences all over Germany, at international festivals and as much-sought-after guests of major concert series. With its innovative concert formats, KlangForum Heidelberg has injected new life into the relationship between music and society. Conductor for the ensemble is Walter Nussbaum.

On May 8 at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM the ensemble will present a reading session for young composers at Open Space. At 8:15 PM, an open rehearsal will be presented with composer Örjan Sandred in attendance at Congregation Emanu-El.

On May 9 at 7:30 PM a concert will be presented at Congregation Emanu-El featuring works of Dániel Péter Biró and Gideon Klein performed by the Klangforum Heidelberg and Ensemble Aisthesis. This last year, Dániel Péter Biró has been composing a large-scale musical composition based on Baruch Spinoza’s philosophical work, Ethica. They will also perform a work by Gideon Klein written in during his internment in the Theresienstadt Concentration Camp.

Additional engagements will take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Vancouver BC. For a complete schedule of events, visit http://tsilumos.org/salt2018/
