About the Spring Festival

If you want to know what the state is of contemporary music, you cannot miss the Spring Festival 2019, which will be full of exciting experiments, crossovers and historical concerts. From 1 to 6 April, non-stop concerts take place in the afternoon and evening at the Royal Conservatoire and the Korzo theater. The 2019 edition is all about collaborations. The Ensemble Royaal presents itself this year with musicians from the department of Early Music in new composed works with choreographies danced by students of the Dance Department. The now world-famous Ensemble Klang brings the collectively composed music theater piece ‘A Paradise Built In Hell in collaboration with students of the Royal Academy of Art premiered in Korzo.
The Vocal project and the MoVoEn present new vocal (ensemble) compositions in which the boundaries of singing are stretched considerably.
The leading New European Ensemble celebrates its 10th anniversary with a festively diverse program. The rarely played quarter tone pieces for two pianos from genius rebel Charles Ives will be played together with new works for that combination. One double bass sounds already brilliant, but in the concert ‘Bass in Space’ you will hear eight or even twelve at the same time, that is a completely different story!
This year Nicolas Collins, pioneer in the use of micro computers, is a special guest of the festival. He will perform in a soiree entirely dedicated to his work with students from various departments of the Royal Conservatoire.
