6 Premieres @ Multifunctional hall DOX+

Prague Music Performance regularly initiates and launches premieres of new compositions. However, 6 PREMIERES is an entirely unique event. Six new works by four renowned composers - Roland Dahinden, Didrik Ingvaldsen, Jan Dobiáš, and Dag Magnus Narvesen - will be performed in one night. The audience will have the opportunity to witness completely different compositional approaches. Another dimension to this event is added by the different ways in which each piece will be presented. There will be not only internationally renowned soloists - the legendary German free-jazz pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, Swiss pianist Hildegard Kleeb, award-winning Norwegian pianist Ellen Ugelvik, Czech experimental musician Mikulas Mrva, but also larger ensembles - the original and variable PMP Orchestra, the PMP Ensemble, and Dust in the Groove. 

Swiss composer Roland Dahinden's composition Talking With Trane will be performed by pianist Hildegrad Kleeb and the PMP Orchestra. John Coltrane’s compositions Giant Steps, Naima, and Spiral inspired Dahinden to have an imaginary conversation with the aforementioned artist. In his poieces, Dahinden employs rhythmic compression and overlapping scales and extends the specific sound of Coltrane's compositions into an orchestral domain. Another Dahinden composition, Action Music, notated in a graphic score, is inspired in the gestural paintings by Jackson Pollock and will be performed by the experimental ensemble Dust in the Groove.
