Composition Commission issued to Samir Odeh-Tamimi

Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, France

The creation and transmission of contemporary repertoire plays an important role for the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, especially since INCISES was called into existence in 2019 by Pierre Audi. The program presents contemporary music and living composers. Within this context, the Festival d'Aix has commissioned L'Apocalypse Arabe: a work of music theater based on poems by Etel Adnan and composed by Samir Odeh-Tamimi. Performed by the Ensemble Modern Orchestra, L'Apocalypse Arabe tells a universal story of intolerance. The composition commission is supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

Due to the current situation and associated regulations, there may be changes at short notice. For the latest information on the project please therefore check
