Rationality often displaces sensuality in contemporary compositional practice. But the three artists brought together by this programme are united by a sensual approach, a desire for sound and the need for expression. Deep in our hearts and memories is the sensitive and at the same time yearning personality of Dominique Schafer, who was taken from life too early and to whom we would like to dedicate the retrospective part of this birthday concert.
