Unheard Music Festival

The diversity of the classical music world 

Unheard Music Festival, organized by the Matangi Quartet in collaboration with Korzo, is a unique event that focuses on exploring and celebrating lesser-known and unheard music. This 8th edition of the festival is all about the theme of diversity. How diverse is the classical music world? Do the performing arts reflect the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community? Unheard Music Festival asks these questions and looks at the past, present and future. 

The programme consists of various concerts that touch on these themes, with the opening concert Queer Klassiek (with actor/host/storyteller Rick Paul van Mulligen) and the opera For a Look or a Touch by Jake Heggie on the 4th of May. The closing concert on the 5th of May celebrates the diversity of artistic expression in classical music with music by Caroline Shaw, Jonathan Dove and Julius Eastman. Check out the full programme below.
