Composition Commission issued to Amr Okba

Osterfestival Tirol, Hall, Austria

Passion Today: How do young composers from different cultures deal with this topic? What does Passion mean today? How do they translate it musically in the 21st century? How can old instruments be translated for our time, for modern-day use? Using these questions and specifications Amr Okba, among others, will find new approaches. The composition commission is made possible by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
