Score Collective, the ensemble for new music of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, plays a programme full of American music from the 20th and 21st centuries. The avant-garde gained momentum after World War II, especially in the United States, thanks to composers like John Cage. Many of those composers used religion or spirituality as an underlying philosophy in their work. In this programme, some of these pieces are brought together through text. Thus, we take a journey through the cultural developments in post-war America.
