During Festival Dag in de Branding on October 24, 2020 we present the piece Thin Air by composer of the Dutch Calliope Tsoupaki, performed by bass clarinet. This initiative comes from Festivals of Compassion.
With Festivals for Compassion festivals around Europe express their solidarity in these times of Corona by presenting a new solo composition by the Greek-Dutch composer Calliope Tsoupaki. Each festival selects their own artist and instrument. The piece was premiered on the Dutch NPO Radio 4 on 20 June, with the Flemish Klara taking over the next day. After this, like a relay race of compassion, the work will begin its journey through Europe travelling from festival to festival, and will be shared online.
