Dag in de Branding
New European Ensemble performs the Dutch premiere of Ritroverai le nubi – a work about childlike silence and contemplation by Italian Amsterdammer Giuliano Bracci.

Brazilian composer Julian Maple-Oliveira, who studied not only composition but also sonology, loves alternative and complex pop music. He has now combined all these interests in an experimental song cycle for soprano, acoustic instruments (played by the members of the New European Ensemble) and self-built electromechanical instruments.

Following this, the New European Ensemble performs the Dutch premiere of Ritroverai le nubi – a work about childlike silence and contemplation by Italian Amsterdammer Giuliano Bracci.

Julian “For the Dag in de Branding project I am developing a series of five musical experiments in the form of songs for voice, electronics and instrumental ensemble. This project combines my love for cartoons and contemporary music. In associating these two aspects I’ve created a persona named Oliver Maple – a cartoon character who writes music and goes on fantastic (and fun) adventures.” You can listen to the 5 songs here. These songs will be performed in a special arrangement on May 21st by the New European Ensemble.

A portrait of Sofia Goebaidoelina
Meditation and tumult: they seem to be mutually exclusive, but the Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina is known for incorporating both of these into her music in a beautiful way.

Her work is on the one hand rooted in the Russian tradition of her predecessors such as Dmitri Shostakovich, but on the other hand it also originates from a process of improvisation and intimate reflection.

The composer played the guitar herself, so this instrument is close to her heart. Another of her favorite instruments is the double bass, which takes on a solo role in Sotto Voce and Repentance. These chamber music works from the last decades are written for a small guitar ensemble with a solo part for the viola in Sotto Voce and for the cello in the mysterious piece Repentance.
