Lockdown Diary

Lockdown Diary

With a video “Lockdown Diary” the Leipzig ensemble Tempus Konnex supports and encourages composers and musicians to think creatively during these challenging times. In partnership with the Forum of Contemporary Music Leipzig (FZML), Tempus Konnex founded the Ensemblefestival for contemporary music, which celebrated its first season in November 2020. The ongoing pandemic has prompted the artistic sector, including our festival, to scrutinize and reconceive conventional concert formats. Through these video diary entries, we are offering fresh compositions a platform, and continuing our momentum towards the second half of the Leipzig Ensemblefestival in April 2021.
