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).

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
