Mariën & Soeter
Tim Mariën’s sound world is unique in Flanders and far outside its borders as well. They must have realised this as well in Darmstadt, where he was awarded a Stipendienpreis or stipend award in 2010. In this portrait concert, the young Flemish ensemble Tiptoe Company will play his most important recent works and will add a world premiere. Using microtonal string instruments, re-tuned pianos and alternative playing techniques, Mariën balances between delicacy and exuberance, poetry and effervescence. Different in tone, but equally inventive is the music of the young Dutch composer Nicoline Soeter. A world première of hers will round out the programme nicely.
