Venice, Island of San Giorgio Maggiore
Concerts and performing arts
As part of the seminar entitled “Monteverdian Echoes in 20th-Century Italian Music”, organised by the Institute of Music, the mdi ensemble will give a concert for string quartet.
7 December 2018, Squero Auditorium, 7.00 pm
The Institute of Music continues its fruitful collaboration with the mdi ensemble from Milan, one of the most interesting young groups performing contemporary music. The ensemble immediately made a name thanks to its versatility and competence when working with leading contemporary composers, such as Helmut Lachenmann, Gérard Pesson and Stefano Gervasoni, or collaborating with conductors, such as Stefan Asbury, Emilio Pomarico, Beat Furrer, Pierre André Valade and Yoichi Sugiyama.
In 2017 the midi ensemble was honoured with “A Life in Music”, a special prize awarded every year by the Teatro La Fenice in Venice.
