Mart Kangro/Ansambel U: - Harmony

On its 20th birthday, Ensemble U: presents a selection of works by composers most important to them. The group is an avid commissioner and performer of Estonian new music. Of course, the jubilee concert will feature premieres, this time from Jüri Reinvere and Tatjana Kozlova-Johannes.

The second half of the concert features a remake of the contemporary dance and musical theatre work Harmony, which was a 2009 co-creation of Ensemble U: and Mart Kangro. The performance centres on a selection of paradoxes in the life of music performers. What do musicians actually do when playing music? What does a musician think and how does one use ones time in the middle of a long suite, waiting for his five-stroke solo? Is this forced silence comical or maybe even tragic?

In collaboration with International Contemporary Music Festival AFEKT and Ensemble U:
