The programme comprises four concerts, on 4 and 5 June, plus an exhibition about the connection between Xenakis’ architecture and his music, entitled Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary.

The Residentie Orkest conducted by Arturo Tamayo will peform the piece twice. The audience is invited to change seats for the second run-through. In between, Arne Deforce will play the magnificent cello piece Nomos Alpha. The Residentie Orkest performs Nomos Gamma.
