Cocktail für die Musen

Gwendolyn has been given the privilege of carte blanche, the opportunity to invite and collaborate with musicians she admires to present ‘mixes’ of music in a new context.

Each concert is unique, shaken or stirred, designed exclusively for the great hall in the Casino. Individual programmes take months to design, with compositions especially written for each formation. Musicians on all sides of the spectrum are in a position to have their music heard with fresh textures, instrumentation and unusual combinations of people playing together.
