Mahnkopf: First Chamber Symphony and “Con Luigi Nono” in Geneva

The composer Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf has a very close relationship with the genre of the chamber symphony. Although his new Chamber Symphony No. 4 has not yet been performed, his first confrontation with the genre - the unnumbered Chamber Symphony of 1994 - will receive its world premiere in Geneva on 16 May 2017 performed by the Ensemble Contrechamps under the direction of Clement Power in the Studio Ansermet.

Soloists of the Ensemble Contrechamps will also present the world premiere of Mahnkopf’s “Con Luigi Nono” for string trio at the same concert. This work was commissioned by the Ensemble with the assistance of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
