The Cadenza Contemporary Orchestra will perform a concert at the International Mugham Center on July 22, reports Azernews, citing the Mugham Center.

The “Spring and Summer” concert will feature the works of the winners of the “Call for scores” competition.

In addition, Louis Andriessen Workers’ Union will ring for the first time in Azerbaijan.

Workers Union (1975) is a composition intended for any group of sound instruments; Andriessen did not want to handicap orchestras by providing a list of instruments.

It is a melodically indeterminate piece; this means that there is no defined key or melody.

The piece is very strict rhythmically, with only a guide to lower or raise the pitches.

The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. and admission is free.
