ACHT BRÜCKEN 2015 | "EIGHT BRIDGES" 2015 takes "Music. Politics?" as its theme, asking whether and to what extent new music has a political stance or is even itself a political act. Works by composers such as Louis Andriessen offer ample material for this lively controversy.


Louis Andriessen: M is for Man, Music, Mozart (1991), Tapdance (2013), La Passione (2002)
