Composition Commissions issued to Sarah Nemtsov, Zeynep Gedizlioğlu and Amr Okba

Osterfestival Tirol, Hall, Austria

Passion Today: How do young composers from different cultures deal with this topic? What does Passion mean today? How do they translate it musically in the 21st century? How can old instruments be translated for our time, for modern-day use? Using these questions and specifications Sarah Nemtsov, Zeynep Gedizlioğlu and Amr Okba will find new approaches in collaboration with Daniel Gloger, Eva Reiter, David Bergmüller and Annelie Gahl. The three composition commissions are made possible by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
