The elite musicians from ensemble recherche perform music by Allan Gravgaard Madsen, who works with recomposition of and echoes from the masterpieces of the past.

During the concerts, Madsen’s music is recomposed by sound artist Morten Riis on the Electro Mechanical Loudspeaker Orchestra, which he built especially for this project.

The concerts will be a mix of past, present and future, of traditional and experimental classical music as well as electronic music / sound art.
