Works by Egoyan, Frehner, Ruders, Sharman and Sokolović.
Attention: Not for the faint of heart! The Aventa ensemble of 15 musicians will challenge listeners to move from a state of contemplation (Géométrie sentimentale) to an euphoric vertigo (Voluptuous Panic) by way of sensuality and brightness evoking the music of Kafka’s era (Kafkapriccio). Extreme programming — Aventa gives full coverage!
