The programme includes Auguste Renoir’s “Portrait of Jeanne Samary“ with the string sextet from the opera “Capriccio“ by Richard Strauss, Henri Matisse’s “The Dance“ with Jörg Widmann’s “180 Beats per Minute“ and – as the pièce de résistance – Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting “Starry Night“ with Arnold Schönberg’s tone poem “Transfigured Night“.

Ensemble UNO

“In the heart of the crisis, we found each other – both musically and as people. Our motivation is experimenting, staging and performing with music and sound, as well as exploring the link between music and art, literature and theatre. Our desire for a young, versatile ensemble that could cover both classical and more unusual formations, as well as our vision of bringing music that is rarely played to locations that rarely host concerts are what drove us as musicians to form Ensemble UNO. What never changes is our focus on achieving the highest possible musical standards, so we all have to be able to demonstrate top-quality artistic skills.”
