6 - 10 September 2017 From classical crossover and minimal soundscapes to modern composition with (live) electronics. Gaudeamus Muziekweek presents the newest music by young music pioneers during the eponymous and highly renowned music festival in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
After a full Academy week Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2015 started last Wednesday. With photos and a 100-second video we look back on a wonderful opening concert with Asko|Schönberg, Slagwerk Den Haag and Nederlands Kamerkoor.
The press rewarded the concert with 4 stars.
Louis Andriessen gave an energetic speech during the opening.
You can listen to the opening concert on Radio 4.
Several media have reported on Gaudeamus Muziekweek. Most of them are in Dutch but Vrije Geluiden has several interviews with composers and musicians in English. Enjoy!
