From Goethe Institut:

The concert series introduces compositions of the 20th and 21st centuries by important living or deceased world-famous composers: a stage of unlimited creativity, rich and extremely diverse developments of different musical colors and composition techniques. The performers are soloists and lecturers at the music academy and at the Inspirito School of Music.

The third programme of the concert series “20th Century Music” offers various musical styles and languages from different countries. You will hear compositions by two big names of the 20th century, Paul Hindemith (Germany) and Igor Stravinsky (Russia). Reminiscence of soviet jazz will be heard through recently deceased Nikolay Kapustin (Russia). Closer to our generation and very active in international music are compositions by Fazil Say (Turkey), Sheila Silver (USA) and a new strong voice of contemporary composition from Vietnam: Pho Duc Hoang.
