This weekend, the Belgian city of Leuven and STUK, kunsten-centrum will once again play host to TRANSIT, the yearly festival for new music (hosted and presented by Festival 20/21).
This year’s guests include the New York based ensemble Talea, Tiptoe Company (Belgium), LAPS Ensemble (Belgium), Het Collectief (Belgium), and Gareth Davies & The Jullie Mittens (UK & The Netherlands.) Tom de Cock and Elizabeth Keusch with the assistance of Klaas Columbier and Yukiko Sugawara, respectively, will also present solo programs at this year’s event. And certainly a not to miss project will be Matrix’s 1+1.
I personally will be wearing two hats this weekend. I will conduct the fabulous and diverse Nadar Ensemble, presenting pieces by Khubeev (this year’s winner of the Gaudeamus Prize), A. Schubert , Steen-Andersen and a world premiere from Jennifer Walshe. And, I will also handle the technical coordination for the entire festival.
Hope to see you there!
