X-Anthèmes Premiere at Belgrade by Construction Ensemble | Serbia

X-Anthèmes is presented at Belgrade as a part of the Composer’s Review project organized by the Composer’s Association of Serbia. X-Anthemes will be performed by Construction Ensemble on Friday, 25 September 2015, at 8 PM, Foyer of the National Bank of Serbia.

X-Anthèmes is based on national anthems from various countries around the globe. National anthems are, with very few exceptions, heavily militaristic, “serious” music. In this piece, they are processed, reformed, and re-presented from a virtuosic, lighter, and more translucent perspective. Although the selection of the Anthems was made solely with artistic criteria, the reformation itself can be considered as a political statement.
