PRESS RELEASE – ECCO CONCERT SELECTION – BRUSSELS, FEBRUARY 2019

17th December 2018

Dušan Bavdek, the chair of the ECCO Working Group, sums up the selection process as follows:

On 3 December, the ECCO Artistic Committee, consisting of Jana Andreevska (North Macedonia), Lorenzo Carola (Belgium), Stijn Boeve (Centre Henri Pousseur), François Couvreur (Ensemble Hopper) and myself as a chair met in Brussels to select the programme for the 12th ECCO Concert. I would like to sincerely thank the ECSA members from 13 European countries for submitting 28 interesting, diverse and quality pieces for instruments and electronics. I hope for an even wider response to finally cover all the ECSA member societies in the future ECCO calls.

In this regard, ECSA and the ECCO Artistic Committee are pleased to announce the names of the composers and their pieces that will be performed at the next edition of the ECCO concert at Espace Senghor in Brussels on 19th February 2019.

The following pieces will be performed by Ensemble Hopper under the direction of conductor François Deppe and with the technical assistance and expertise of the renowned Centre Henri Pousseur:

  • Triangulation by Talia Amar (Israel)
  • Defragmentation 2 by Gilles Doneux (Belgium)
  • Studies for Piano Trio – 3 Depictions of Night by Jan Flessel (Denmark)
  • Logo by Sampo Haapamäki (Finland)
  • Avatar by Gaëlle Hyernaux (Belgium)
  • Winnowing by Maija Hynninen (Finland)
  • Gestures No. 1 (Presentiment) by Gyula Pintér (Hungary)

Make sure not to miss the extra event that ECSA is organising in the framework of ECCO!

To augment the audience’s experience, a special workshop will be set up the day before the concert. “Inside the composer’s head – discovering contemporary art music” is a workshop where the ensemble and the composers meet to rehearse and discuss the pieces. It will be a unique opportunity for interested parties to ask the composers questions about the pieces, the composition process and pose any other burning questions.

Time and place: 18th February 2019 at Espace Senghor.
