ULYSSES ENSEMBLE 2021

Inspired by the grand tours of classical musicians traveling through Europe and the goals of training and enriching the practices of young musicians, the ULYSSES Network brings together 11 European institutions for the promotion and professionalization of young composers. With the ULYSSES Ensemble, the ULYSSES Network reached a new peak in 2017, concentrating its efforts on young performers in the domain of new music.

In 2021 the ULYSSES Ensemble tours from June to October, visiting several European academies and festivals (IRCAM ManiFeste, Fondation Royaumont, Festival Mixtur).

Festival Mixtur has the pleasure to invite Beat Furrer in his dual role of composer and conductor. The young musicians from Ulysses Ensemble during their stay in Barcelona will have the opportunity to work on Furrer’s music, conducted by himself, as well as other pieces from the contemporary repertoire. The activity will culminate with a concert within the framework of Festival Mixtur 2021.
