Chamber music or solo contributions to be presented to the participants of the project „Sounds of Nature” within the framework of isaOutreach 2021.
We are looking for works or excerpts of works or movements from the classical to contemporary repertoire that make reference to sounds of nature. These can be works whose titles or subtitles make corresponding references or which optionally trigger corresponding associations for the performer.
The offer and invitation is to present these works to the project participants within the framework of the isaOutreach workshops, after consultation, and to discuss them in depth with the isa-participants in the sense of music-mediating approaches.
