02.08.2018          South Africa with Asko|Schönberg

Last month I had the pleasure of joining the Asko|Schönberg ensemble for 4 performances at the National Arts Festival in Makhanda, South Africa.
The title of the performance was “Circus Schönberg” and was a rollicking ride through music of the 20th century with a tight group of 4 musicians, including myself. Apart from the fun of playing with the ensemble, getting to play a few solo numbers and also seeing South Africa again for the first time in 11 years, it was also great to see how well the music was received. I’m very proud to share this review of one of our performances which also mentions my solo performance of Tom Johnson’s “Failing” as a highlight!

Maarten Vos is a multitalented artist who is taking the electronic music world by storm. Having begun his musical life on the cello, he then went on to study live electronics and has been incredibly in demand as both electronic musician and cellist, appearing at festivals all over the world.
