From electronics to philharmonic and back to future


Experimental sounds and music of the JMZM duo at the KIC opens the penultimate Biennale day. The duo members Josip Maršić and Zoran Medved are premiering the composition titled Fibres with the help of computer and software, classical and self-constructed instruments and various objects, toys and anything else that can produce sound that, as the author say, kills indifference.

The afternoon set of concerts at the HGZ is reserved for the wind quintet Slowind, while tonight at the grand Lisinski hall we get to hear the Biennale concert of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra, after last night's successful performance of the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra, conducted by Maestro Aleksandar Kalajdžić, will perform Psalmus for bassoon and orchestra by Wolfgang Rihm, Quatrain for clarinet, violin, cello, piano and orchestra by Toru Takemitsu and Uncesasing Prayers for cello and orchestra by Đuro Živković, but we are all eagerly awaiting the premiere of the composition commissioned by the Zagreb Philharmonic, Symphony movement for organ and orchestra by Davorin Kempf. As before, a number of prominent Croatian soloists will also perform: organist Ljerka Očić, bassoonist Žarko Perišić, cellist Pavle Zajcev and the members of the Alisios Camerata ensemble Radovan Cavallin – clarinet, Vlatka Peljhan – violin, Martin Rummel – cello and Mia Elezović – piano.

The Dream Logic, the Norwegian duo consisting of Eivind Aarset on electrical guitar and Jan Bang responsible for live sampling, will conclude the day's program at the &TD Theater.
