Besides being selected as one of the ULYSSES composers, Diego Ramos Rodriguez also takes part in this concert as violin player in the Améi Quartet, performing his own new work amongst others.
At this occasion, the Améi Qartet also presents the premiere of a new piece by young Nordic composer Rebecka Ahvenniemi, commissioned by Ultima.


Another promising performer, selected by the ULYSSES Network and participating to the concert is Joshua Hyde (AUS), performing with his duo for saxophone and percussion (Noam Bierstone) called scapegoat  works by Mauricio Pauly, Michelle Lou and Pierluigi Billone.
