Programme

A RETROSPECTIVE CONCERT PRESENTING NEW SOUND EXPERIENCES AND CLASSICAL PIECES

On 20 November 2019, the day before the Final of the Geneva International Music Competition, Eklekto will be presenting an exclusive event looking back over the best moments of their musical programme. This retrospective concert will include spectacular pieces for an ensemble of 15 musicians, works which will bring back long-forgotten classical instruments such as triangles and the snare drum, and more surprises around composers Ryoji Ikeda, Mark Barden and Alessandro Bosetti. This is an event that will delight music lovers and anyone with an avid interest in new sound experiences and a sense of curiosity.

Eklekto is a contemporary percussion ensemble from Geneva, created in 1974. Since its beginnings, when it used the name of Geneva Percussion Ensemble, Eklekto has become a collective of now over 20 musicians whose concerts are performed on stages in both Europe and the rest of the world. Eklekto owns a collection of 2000 instruments which contribute to promoting percussion around Lake Geneva. Under the management of percussionist Alexandre Babel, the ensemble performs concerts and provides educational activities and mediation events which continuously reinvent the percussion of today.
