Heinz Holliger visits Orpheus

Study Day with Heinz Holliger

8-10 February, 2016

Heinz Holliger is one of those rare contemporary musicians who combine composing, playing, conducting, teaching, lecturing on a tremendously high level in a continuous stream of creativity since six decades.

During his visit to Orpheus he will deliver testimonies about his relation to his own music and to the music of others like Debussy or Schumann - by playing, explaining and coaching. About this relation he says himsself : "My entire relation to music is such that I always try to go to the limits."

The Orpheus Institute will be thus a perfect environment.
