Neue Vocalsolisten


Under the impression of a community in Europe that is drifting apart and threatened by populism and war, the Biennale Zagreb and the Neue Vocalsolisten invite six composers from the six states of the former Yugoslavia to deal with the effects of the Balkan wars, which have left a lasting mark on the societies of their home countries to this day, in the context of artistic work.

BALKAN AFFAIRS is therefore also and above all a compositional exploration of vocal music by six composers working mostly with electronic music. The intensive composition process was accompanied by several individual work stays of the participating composers with the Neue Vocalsolisten in Stuttgart.
