Musicatreize Ensemble
Direction Roland Hayrabedian
Piano Elena Rozanova
Accordeon Jean-Etienne Soty

12 creations for 12 voices, piano and accordion by (in alphabetical order):
Benjamin Attahir, Ludwig van Beethoven, Birke Bertelsmeier, Violeta Cruz, Sivan Eldar, Ivan Fedele, Joan Magrané Figuera, Stanislav Makovsky, Alexandros Markeas, Annette Mengel, Philippe Schoeller, Oscar Strasnoy, Iris Ter Schiphorst

In 2020 we celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday.
Naturally Musicatreize participates in this event, but as usual, in an unconventional way.
We are asking 12 composers, at least three of them Germans, to each write a “Letter to Elise” featuring one to twelve voices and a piano (or accordion). A short piece by Beethoven on the piano will provide a link between each letter.
