It all started in a small club in Zurich's Kreis 5...


THe First Ynight at BLOK Zurich, feat. Stephen Malinowski

Blok, Zurich, October 2012: a crew of musicians - classically trained, DJs, electronic musicians -, designers, bankers, cultural managers, innovation specialists and journalists launched a new, independent Classical-in-Club series. The club was completely sold-out, the evening a huge success. And it was only the start.

Since then, the Ynight laboratory has produced programs with mostly classical music featuring artists such as countertenor Andreas Scholl, violinist Vilde Frang, pianists Tamar Halperin, Julien Quentin and Michael Wendeberg or Björk-visualizer Stephen Malinowski, programs with indie classical music by Judd Greenstein, Missy Mazzoli and with artists such as Shara Worden or Nik Bärtsch and experimental electronic-classical programs with artists such as Gabriel Prokofiev, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Feldermelder or DJ Goldfinger Brothers.
