When we think of "Exodus", we spontaneously think of words such as flight, homeland, danger, sacrifice, war....... Inspired by these concepts, Ensemble88 presents a very various programme in which powerful works in combination with the organ alternate with silent, almost subtle compositions.
Besides works by the well-known composers Kaija Saariaho, Christian Wolff, Toshio Hosokawa and Thierry Escaich, the programme also includes a new composition by the young Maastricht composer Rutger Muller, who is known for his electro-acoustic, almost meditative sounds.
The composition Wasser by Paul Pankert came about as a result of the flood disaster in July 2021 in his native region of East Belgium, where there were many deaths and many people had to flee from their homes.
