Reencontros de Música Contemporânea 2023
wrapping premiered this weekend at Reencontros de Música Contemporânea, in Aveiro.
The concert was dedicated to promoter’s (and commissioner’s) ongoing project Nova Música para Novos Músicos, to which I’ve had the pleasure of contributing several times. Its aim is building up a repertoire of short, pedagogical pieces for younger players that introduce them to the practicalities of performing with electronics.
… which is not quite the case with wrapping, however. This year, I’ve had the pleasure of contributing with a larger ensemble piece, which brought together all of this year’s project participants.
The festival (and its people) is one I hold especially dear — not only for their continued support, but especially for their daring programming. I was delighted to finally be able to make my way to Aveiro and attend.
