The premiere of the pieces will take place during the festival Gaudeamus Muziekweek on 8 September 2017 in Utrecht, the Netherlands; reruns in Frankfurt and Karlsruhe in the midth/end of September.

The rehearsals and the concerts will be guided by the very experienced conductor Lucas Vis and the young IEMA conductor Yalda Zamani.
