On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, the festival invites the festivalgoers to the Jardin Botanique of Liège for two days of musical miniatures. 

On Sunday, the young Liège-based composer Stefan Hejdrowski presents his new composition Allongée sur le vide, for voice, alto flute and cello. The work will be premiered by Ensemble 88. 

Composer and cellist Jean-Paul Dessy performs an improvisation in his sound installation Le Chant des Chauves-Souris

Both concerts are being played simultaneously. You can start with Allongée sur le vide at 2pm and continue at 3pm with Le Chant des Chauves-Souris, or vice-versa. 

The weekend will be rounded off at the Parc du Jardin Botanique with the dance performance À-Plat, a choreography by Myriam Gourfink set to music by Kasper T. Toeplitz.
