From Friday 8 October, the Hague string orchestra Ciconia Consort conducted by Dick van Gasteren will present the concert program Kaukasische Klanken. Together with soloist Isabelle van Keulen, Ciconia plays music from the Causcasus: a flourishing and exceptionally varied musical journey, full of Dutch premiers. Kaukasische Klanken will be played in Zutphen (October 8), The Hague (October 9), Delden (October 10) and Amsterdam (October 31).

Ciconia Consort starts the new concert season together with Isabelle van Keulen with music from the Caucasian countries. The mountainous region in EurAsia is at a crossroads of cultures; this results in an extraordinarily rich and varied musical culture and a concert with both folklore and meditative mysticism.

The concert program Kaukasische Klanken also includes musical works that have never been heard in the Netherlands before. The eastern-Arabic Mugham Poéme by Amirov, the lyrical and poetic film music Shushanic by Mirzoyan, and The Lost Balloon by the living Armeninan Hayrapetyan, full of ghostly cluster harmonies and airy melodic lines, make their debut in the Netherlands. 

Tsintsadze transforms the folk music of the Gregorian countryside into art music in his work Miniatures on Georgian Folk Themes. Star soloist Isabelle van Keulen will show her versatile musical qualities in the virtuoso Mugham Poéme and the meditative mystical Vientulais Engelis by Vasks.
