ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Asko|Schönberg, one of the finest new music ensembles in Europe, comes to the Library for a rare visit to the United States. Presenting two varied programs under the helm of Oliver Cuendet and with the assistance of vocalists Katrien Baerts and Gerrie de Vries, Asko|Schönberg will offer classics of 20th-century literature alongside recent works by living composers. Dutch composer Martijn Padding will be present on January 31 to speak about his piece, and we will have the first opportunity in the Coolidge to hear selections from Mauricio Kagel’s multi-directional work for chamber orchestra, Die Stücke der Windrose, on February 1. Let the “parts of the compass” guide you to the Library for these sensational works.

Presented in cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
