KLANG goes Symphony and Oldschool Avantgarde

Full Symphony Orchestra Meets The Challenge of Avantgarde

This year, for the first time, KLANG presents a full symphony orchestra at the Danish Radio Concert Hall Copenhagen: The Danish National Chamber Orchestra ends it's season on May 31st  with an “Avantgardistic Prom Night”, celebrating the past concert season and saying "so long!" with a cutting edge concert: Here they will try their hands at avantgarde music accompanied by the young, progressive, Danish ensemble, SCENATET. Come enjoy the best of musicians performing a brand new world premiere by the internationally recognized Danish composer, Bent Sørensen (DK), followed by one of the foremost Danish composers of the younger generation, Niels Rønsholdt (DK), with his alluring, intimate work, Me Quitte.


Oldschool Avantgarde: Young Soloists, Old Works

As a way of honoring the masters, on whose shoulders today’s musicians stand, this year, the festival also offers a tribute to some of the greatest composers of the twentieth century – performed by some of Denmark’s most promising young musicians. Each night in the festival café, young soloist students from the Royal Danish Academy of Music will tribute the legends of musical avantgarde by performing world famous masterpieces by none less than Luciano Berio, Karlheinz Stockhausen, György Ligeti, Iannis Xenakis, and John Cage.


The young students from the academy is Luiza Labouriau, Søren-Filip Hansen, Babett Hartmann, Maciej Swinoga, Jeppe Ernst, and Martin Stauning, and we're very proud and impressed by their bravery and high skills!

All the Oldschool Avantgarde concerts in the Festival Café starts after the last concert of the day at Festival Stage. And if you're already at KLANG, it's free: A tickets from a same day concert at the Festival Stage serves as admission. Otherwise admission can be purchased at the door for only 20 DKK.
