Saison 2016/Teil II

Ensemble CrossingLines, Barcelona, Spain


The Ensemble CrossingLines is considered one of the leading Catalonian ensembles for contemporary music. In the second half of the 2016 season, once again with the support of the EvS Music Foundation, the ensemble will be supporting two programs in a total of four concerts. WE ARE drONE is a joint project with the Frames Percussion Quartet. The art centers hosting the concerts in this program will be featured at the forefront of the performance. On the basis of the piece Schraffur by Switzerland’s Fritz Hauser further musical ideas will be developed with a strong spatial reference. The second program to be presented, Spanish Paradox, is a musical reflection of the situation facing young artists and composers in Spain at times of economic crisis. Young artists are currently unwilling to accept a situation whereby funding for art and culture has been drastically cut, nor are they prepared to give up their profession and music. As part of the concert the ensembles will be presenting two composition commissions and two Spanish premieres.
