Orchestral works by Iannis Xenakis

The Essential Xenakis concert will be played by ONO – Ostrava New Orchestra, an  international young people’s symphony orchestra founded in 2017 for the Ostrava Days  festival, and motivated by the need to interpret contemporary music. The orchestra includes  young Czech musicians who are thus given a unique opportunity to work with their foreign  colleagues in the area of contemporary music.

The concert featuring compositions by a single composer, will once again be a unique feat, supported by virtuoso performances by soloists from abroad. We will present orchestral compositions by one of Europe’s most important and influential composers of the second half of the twentieth century (and architect), Iannis Xenakis: three of his important orchestral works that are being played in Prague for the first time.

The ONO Orchestra will consist of young musicians (18-30 years of age) from the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, and Romania.
