  • Ensemble Modern

The young Brahms served as a conductor and teacher at the Detmold court in the late 1850s. His mature chamber compositions owe much to the refined craftsmanship of the two Serenades he wrote there, the first of which can be heard in this recital in its nonet form.

Ensemble Modern also performs scores by the experimental composer Hannes Seidl and by Michael Quell, whose recent music has been inspired by interdisciplinary dialogue.
