ZEITSTRÖME FESTIVAL – Tage für aktuelle Musik | SONAR QUARTETT / SOFIA LABROPOULOU – works for Kanun and string quartet | Akademie für Tonkunst, Darmstadt, Germany | Feb 11, 2023 | 19:00

The highly virtuosic Sonar Quartet and the Kanun player Sofia Labropoulou present works by Dimitri Papageorgiou and Stefan Pohlit, which were developed especially for these musicians. The Turkish zither meets the traditional string quartet and together they promise extraordinary and exciting sound experiences.

The Sonar Quartet’s composition commissions are funded by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. The concert is sponsored by the German Music Council as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR program with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
