Ensemble Phoenix Basel — Noriko Hisada Portrait

Gare du Nord
© felix groteloh

The Japanese composer Noriko Hisada is an exceptional voice of Japan whose music is performed far too rarely. The Ensemble für Neue Musik Zürich has been championing the music of this composer, who was still unknown in Europe at the time, for over 30 years and premiered her quintet “Prognostication” in Boswil in 1991 with Jürg Henneberger at the piano. Ensemble Phoenix Basel now presents this work together with the seven-part ensemble piece “Led by the Yellow Bricks,” written 25 years later and inspired by Lyman Frank Baum's children's book “The Wizard of Oz.” There will be a free optional 30-minute concert introduction with Sebastian Gottschick and Jürg Henneberger at 19:00.
Tickets are CHF 15-35.
