REMIX ENSEMBLE CASA DA MÚSICA
Sian Edwards musical – direction
Carolin Widmann – Violin
A well-known opera conductor, Sian Edwards has also been noted for her work with the most prestigious new music groups, such as Ensemble Modern, Klangforum Wien or London Sinfonietta. Debuts at the head of the Remix Ensemble with a show that includes top figures in contemporary composition and two comedy premieres from Casa da Música. The fascination with the soloist’s theatrical side and the inspiration of a book by Jacques Roubaud led Kaija Saariaho to bring into his personal language a form that was already as much explored as the soloist and orchestra concert. This will be an opportunity to hear again the fantastic violin Guadagnini (1782) by Carolin Widmann, a great expert in interpreting contemporary music. Closing the night, Unsuk Chin takes us to the street theater of his childhood in the company of the bouncers that crisscrossed the cities of South Korea.
