Cantus Ansambl

French-mathematical program of the Cantus Ensemble at the concert on February 16!

Cantus Ensemble continues its rich season, which included guest appearances in Vienna and Ljubljana, and the next concert is scheduled for February 16 this year and will be held at the Blagoje Bersa Concert Hall at the Zagreb Academy of Music starting at 19:30 hours.
The program of the third concert of the current season of the Cantus Ensemble is woven around the French-mathematical red thread: Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun is one of the works considered the very beginning of contemporary music due to new "syntax" and new sound colors. It was premiered in Paris, just like the Octet by Igor Stravinsky, the beginning of the composer's change of direction towards neoclassicism. Iannis Xenakis has lived in Paris since he was 25 and learned from the French masters, including Messiaen, and brought his mathematical, architectural and engineering knowledge to music. Music and mathematics are an eternal couple, which in the 20th century turned to research of acoustics and electronic music. In Paris the center of research was the IRCAM center, which Croatian composer Davor Branimir Vincze also attended, acquiring knowledge on electronic music, whose latest composition for electronics and ensemble is premiered by Cantus Ensemble and Danijel Martinović as a soloist (clarinet). Music and mathematics also lead to the development of computer programs, such as those used by Srđan Dedić, whose composition was premiered by Cantus in 2016 and is returning to in this concert.
Tickets for the concert at a price of 40 kuna can be purchased online at or at the box office of the Music Academy, which is open two hours before the concert.
