oenm – österreichisches ensemble für neue musik (Salzburg)

A concert to prove that Mozart isn’t the only great music to come out of Salzburg! The city is home to the wonderfully versatile group ‘oenm’ (Austrian Ensemble for New Music) who give us an extremely varied programme, ranging from two Austrian composers of different generations who have gained world-wide recognition, to a work by festival director Gwyn Pritchard and two pieces by composers from Norway and Japan. This is a late-evening ‘cabaret-style’ concert in the Festival Club, with the bar remaining open throughout.
