The purpose of this chamber music concert was to unravel how new pieces of contemporary music are created, with the theme of “hommage and historie”. For example, there are homage-like works that express respect for people and things, and elements of historie that ask themselves how they should express the magnificent forms and architectural beauty that have been nurtured in the past. The work that contains it receives two sensations that grasp both the existing knowledge of the audience and the new creation. Through the composition of the program and the composer’s commentary, we will create a program that will allow us to explore what is the essence of the originality that can be seen there. It was a fun and refreshing performance that allowed the audience to think with a refreshing feeling about the attitude of the composers who skillfully make use of their awareness of the products of the past and try to create a new worldview and their understanding of the works. rice field.
