Night and darkness inspire music that can often touch us deeply. So it’s no wonder that so many composers have taken inspiration from these themes. 

Whether the night in question is in France (Henri Dutilleux), Italy (Salvatore Sciarrino) or Hungary (Béla Bartók, György Ligeti), this concert meticulously explores the infinite gradations of twilight and silence. Our ears can only get keener from hearing it.


Salvatore Sciarrino: Ai limiti della notte

Henri Dutilleux: Ainsi la nuit

Béla Bartók: Strijkkwartet nr. 5 (deel 2) / String Quartet no. 5 (second movement)

György Ligeti: Métamorphoses nocturnes 

INTRO (in Dutch) Klaas Coulembier - 19:45 Kleine Aula Maria Theresia College
