The program is based on the theme SILENCE with works by Grieg, Pärt, Cage, Jongen, Huybregts, Barber (the Adagio), Pejacevic and Respighi. Largely the (unknown) romantic melodic repertoire, with a special trip to Cage's world famous "4'33".

That piece from 1953 turned the world upside down! John Cage gave chance a place in his music and he also thought that ambient sounds were music. The silence of the piece makes you as a listener pay attention to other sounds…

Be amazed and buy your tickets in silence… and:
