NYKY Ensemble performs the premiere of Denis Cohen’s five part series

NYKY Ensemble, also a regular act at Musica nova Helsinki, will perform French composer Denis Cohen’s 5 Péripéties on Friday October 17, 2014. As the musical director of the piece is Musica nova’s own artistic director, the sellist Anssi Karttunen. 

Péripéties/Events is Denis Cohen’s five-part series of pieces for an expanding group. The series begins with a piano, which is gradually joined by a clarinet, cello, trumpet and eventually percussions. Each “Event” introduces a new instrument group and eventually eventually the pieces include all instrument groups of a symphony orchestra. This is the complete work’s world premiere.
