The evening is dedicated to three acclaimed contemporary composers who in the course of their careers have all been scholarship holders at the prestigious Villa Massimo German Academy in Rome, before gaining international recognition for their originality. The program includes the following performances: Karakuri – Poupée mécanique, a piece for voice and ensemble by Ondrej Adámek (the Czech composer known for his experimental approach to electronic and acoustic music); Fantaisie Mécanique by Unsuk Chin (the South Korean composer, internationally recognized as one of the greatest talents of his generation); and Hors d’œuvre by Vito Žuraj, an ensemble piece which will be staged with the extraordinary participation of the two Michelin-starred German chef Daniel Gottschlich (also known for his participation in the German version of the television format Master Chef). The evening continues with Xerrox Vol. 4 by Alva Noto.
