Edition 69 / 15/16 Mar 2024

Edition 69

She is one of the most remarkable composers of the young generation: Mathilde Wantenaar. As guest curator of this edition of Festival Dag in de Branding, Mathilde has put together an exciting programme of music she wants to bring to our attention. On 15 and 16 March 2024, Dag in de Branding presents six events, including performances by ensembles like the Quatuor Bozzini from Canada and the Spaceship Ensemble from The Hague as well as the world premiere of Mathilde’s latest composition, performed by the Residentie Orkest and accordionist Vincent van Amsterdam.

Mathilde Wantenaar makes music that is often lyrical (she also studied singing) and always tells a story. She draws emphatically on tradition, as do many of her contemporaries. Mathilde believes it is important to showcase their music in the festival. What do these young composers have in common? And what does 'innovation' in music actually mean?

Also in this edition, a pop concert-like show by the wayward SMASH.duo that challenges the classical recital format, an appearance of YouTube phenomenon Tantacrul and the presentation of Yannis Kyriakides's latest work for string quartet and electronics. Yet again, Festival Dag in de Branding offers not only fresh notes but also food for thought.
