The Dutch composer Bianca Bongers and Flemish composer Ellen Jacobs are the centre of a concert by a German-Icelandic quartet. This is the closest we’ll get to the pan-European idea at this year’s Transit. Two world premieres for the unusual combination of flute, clarinet, harp and percussion.

Composers

Bianca Bongers

Bianca Bongers (1987) is a Dutch composer and cellist. Starting from a visual way of thinking, her music is recognizable for its high refinement and strong sense of form, in search of shaping music as an almost touchable object. In November 2022 her debut album will be released.

Ellen Jacobs

How intensely do we experience the sound around us? What is the borderline between the sounds that surround us every day and music? Belgian composer Ellen Jacobs (1996) tries to answer these questions by searching for the boundary between electronic and acoustic music and uses both to shape her sound world.
