Students from the Ensemble Academy with the New European Ensemble - Dai Fujikura

Fujikura – Vanishing Point
Toshio Hosokawa – Im Frühlingsgarten
Fujikura - Cello concerto
Yu Oda – Nieuw werk (première)
Fujikura – Ice

For this concert, students from the Ensemble Academy of the Royal Conservatoire will join the New European Ensemble in a program with music by Dai Fujikura.

Dai Fujikura is known for his colourful works connecting the contemporary idiom with the traditional musical language of his native Japan. He has written works for the Salzburger Festspiele, Lucerne Festival, BBC Proms and Chicago Symphony among others.

His majestic and refined concerto for cello and ensemble makes use of subtle instrumentation. Ice full of exotic pecussion instruments, was inspired by the breaking up of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets. The focus on nature is also central to Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa of the older generation, whose work Im Frühlingsgarten, is included. NEuE will also play a new work by Japanese/Dutch composer Yu Oda who connects the music of John Dowland with a contemporary Japanese electronic sound world.
