Ictus & Amir ElSaffar (trumpet): ‘Interstices’

groundbreaking, subdued

Inspiration from Arabic music

Ictus, the Brussels ensemble, continues to renew itself by collaborating with exciting artists from beyond the realms of contemporary classical music. 

A period of intense rehearsals with the New York jazz trumpeter Amir ElSaffar led to a new composition for nine musicians.
