New Music for Strings
The vision behind New Music for Strings is to create an interdisciplinary space between the fields of string instrument performance and composition.
Theme: Sound as Image – What happens when artists interpret sound as image? Can music even be “translated” into visual art, or the other way around? These questions are at the center of the 2023 festival, with public concerts and lectures.
