KLANG: Play on! 9.12.2016

Klang 2016 sees Avanti premiere pieces by the composition students of the Sibelius Academy.
The programme consists of three pairs of compositions, each penned by two aspiring writers. While facing the challenge of overall coherence and ensuring that their piece is in unison with that of their pair’s, the composers have also a unique chance to explore the range of instrumentation possibilities that the large ensemble opens up. For seamless, vignette-like transitions, they will have to enter into a dialogue and have the readiness to meet each other halfway. Where does one’s identity begin and end, or can two become one?
