Atlas Festival 6 and 7 September 2014
Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ Amsterdam
In the second Atlas Festival, the Atlas Ensemble welcomes, amongst others, the Indian master of the sarangi Dhruba Ghosh, and the world-famous Armenian duduk-player Gevorg Dabaghian. The 48-hours experience of music without boundaries, offers a combination of traditional and brand-new music. Meetings between musicians from different cultures render unheard new experiences: Indian raga principles, ecstatic playing from the Caucasus, quiet Japanese sounds and thrilling Chinese virtuosity stand alongside Western composition techniques in pieces that are specifically written for the ensemble.
