(Un)heard Music Festival

Sat 16 & Sun 17 March 2019

Six Dutch premieres and a world premiere at festival for ‘unheard’ classical music

The Matangi Quartet invites the Polish composer Paweł Szymański to the Netherlands for the latest edition of the (Un)heard Music Festival. It is the third edition of the festival dedicated primarily to unheard music at the Korzo theatre in The Hague.

The central work on the program is Szymański’s composition Five Pieces for string quartet and six Dutch premieres of pieces by Szymański. The Polish composer’s abstract sounds and love of ancient music create an enormous depth and an intimate atmosphere. His music is like poetry in that there is no clear narrative, only the sounds that transport you and allow the listeners to explore the music for themselves. The festival is spread over three concerts: an opening concert on Saturday afternoon, a marathon concert with highlights from Szymański’s oeuvre at 20:30, and one on Sunday morning. In the opening concert, a new work by Dutch composer Jacob ter Veldhuis, specially written for the Matangi Quartet, gets its premiere performance. 

The festival consists of three concerts with a rich fringe program and a workshop for kids.
