With compositions by HILDEGARD VON BINGEN, PHILIP GLASS, MAX RICHTER, FAUSTAS LATĖNAS and GEDIMINAS GELGOTAS.
NICO – the New Ideas Chamber Orchestra – was already a guest on Usedom in 2011 and 2018. It plays from memory and fuses classical and pop music with unusual playing techniques to create spectacular performances. The 35-year-old Lithuanian composer, pianist and conductor Gediminas Gelgotas founded and directs it. The ensemble has a close partnership with the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi. The music the ensemble cultivates is influenced by American minimalism. The movement choreographies and the inimitable drive of the musicians always cause a sensation.
