There’s less than a month to go before Le Guess Who? takes over Utrecht. With over 150 artists set to perform, how do we make sense of such a monumental line-up? We made a list of the artists we’re most excited to see and asked them for their recommendations.
Performing Thursday 7th November at TivoliVredenburg, curated by Patrick Higgins
Exhibiting an unsurpassed mastery of the violin and the viola, Miranda Cuckson performs beautifully anything that comes her way. A renowned and unique performer, with numerous prestigious awards and accolades under her belt, she engages wholeheartedly and skilfully with her music, playing pieces ranging from the classical repertoire to contemporary ones. Over the past fifteen years, Miranda has performed and worked with an array of both established and emerging composers from around the world and obviously, we can’t wait to see her performing at Le Guess Who?. And now we know who she is looking forward to seeing too!
Performing Friday 8th November at Janskerk, curated by Jenny Hval
“I’m a fan of Sarah Davachi’s music – the tactility of the sound, the throbbing resonance, the stillness but inner intensity. I’m intrigued by how she really delves into the nooks and crannies of an instrument’s tone, just dwells there. I’m excited she’s performing. ”
Performing Sunday 10th November at at TivoliVredenburg
“I’m also thrilled about Fatoumata Diowara, both her own performance and her curation. Her music is exhilarating and I think what she does as an African and international artist is amazing.”
