In order to curb a further outbreak of the coronavirus, the authorities immediately announced a ban on events involving more than 100 people. Festival Dag in de Branding will take place online. For more information take a look at https://www.dagindebranding.nl/.


During the 55th edition of Festival Dag in de Branding The Nederlands Blazers Ensemble opens with The Unknown Chaplin, with music by Micha Hamel, Reza Namavar, Oene van Geel and others. The New European Ensemble plays a portrait of the Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir both on Saturday and Sunday. Composer Meriç Artaç presents the new work Zizos performed by Catchpenny Ensemble.

Sunday 8 March 15 p.m. - Anna Thorvaldsdottir programme II

  • Carlo Boccadoro – Primo Taccuino dell’ombra e della luce
  • Anna Thorvaldsdottir – In the Light of Air
  • New European Ensemble / Ensemble Academie Koninklijk Conservatorium / Carlo Boccadoro, conductor

In the second part of this portrait in music, three earlier pieces by Anna Thorvaldsdottir form a showcase of the way her work has developed into a ‘combination of strength and intimacy’, as it was once described in the British magazine Gramophone. The programme culminates in In the Light of Air, an ensemble piece whose four movements flow together seamlessly, each one featuring a different solo instrument.

The Dag in de Branding Festival in The Hague is one of the most prestigious festivals of new music in the Netherlands. Four times a year the Dag in de Branding Festival organises a diverse and exciting programme of events at various locations in The Hague. The festival highlights the latest developments in classical and improvised music, musical theatre, jazz, pop music, opera and electronic music. Students and ensembles from the Royal Conservatoire regularly appear at the festival. Every two years a new young creator is given the chance to put his or her stamp on the programme as the Dag in de Branding Festival’s artist in residence. For the 2019/20 season, that is the composer Meriç Artaç, who has a number of multidisciplinary projects in store.

Passe-partouts for the entire programme of the Dag in de Branding Festival can be ordered at a reduced price. Tickets for individual concerts are available from the venues. There are also attractive discounts for students.
