On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Donaueschingen Music Days, Omnibus Ensemble from Tashkent/Uzbekistan presents four new compositions that premiered in Donaueschingen shortly before. The music pieces were created in dialogue with the composers. From Buddhist rituals to Uzbek sounds to Thai compositional methods, they combine a variety of influences. With compositions by Onur Dülger (Turkey), Piyawat Louilarpprasert (Thailand), Hasan Hujairi (Bahrain) and Qin Yi (China). Talk with Björn Gottstein.
The Omnibus Ensemble from Tashkent is Central Asia’s new music laboratory with Uzbek and European instruments. New compositions are not simply written, but developed in close dialogue over months together with the composers. For Onur Dülger, this was an unusual and time-consuming process, but one that brings an organic quality “that I couldn’t have imagined without the experience with the Omnibus Ensemble.” For Piyawat Louilarpprasert, the collaborative process also enabled him to combine diverse influences in his piece “Ohm-Na-Mo (โอม นะโม)” from Buddhist rituals to Uzbek sounds to Thai compositional methods.
The Omnibus Ensemble are: Sukhrob Nazimov, Oboe; Ravshan Tukhtamishev, Chang; Jakhongir Shukur, Sato;
