Georges Aperghis: Migrants

In 2017, Georges Aperghis wrote the two first movements of Migrants, inspired by the plight of people on the move and by Joseph Conrad’s book, Heart of Darkness (1899). By exploring the human tragedies that unfold every day in Europe and along its fortified shores, the Greek native living in France is entering a territory where few composers dare to venture. “I want to give a face to the drowned corpses that wash up on Europe’s shores as well as to the living who wander around Europe without an identity, who are no longer officially recognised as living beings,” the composer explained. After premiering it in Strasbourg, Ensemble Resonanz will present this powerful work in five movements to a Belgian audience.
