DARA String Festival

Premiering in August 2019, DARA String Festival will present a wide variety of innovative multi-genre music for string instruments, ranging from early contemporary to experimental and freely improvised. DARA transcends genre boundaries, uniting highly renowned international artists from diverse musical backgrounds, in a series of encounters to inspire new thoughts and ideas towards the advancement of individual and collective artistic work. In the longer term DARA aims to present guest editions in collaboration with different partners/curators internationally and expand into electroacoustic and staged multi-media concert performances.
The first festival edition will include open talks and long concert evenings at the fabulous open boat gallery Hošek Contemporary. The concerts will feature solos performed by each artist and selected group combinations. Programmes will include world premiers, compositions and improvisations by Ablinger, Ballon, De Heney, Dillon, Edwards, Gubaidulina, Iddon, Ligeti, Lim, Murail, Rohloff, Voutchkova, Xenakis etc.
