From Sun 24.01.16
  • Bach & Bier

    Even Bach occasional leaps right out of the box. In the appetising concept Bach & Beer we get to enjoy the best that Bruges’s city brewery De Halve Maan has to offer, plus two of Bach’s Cello Suites. American Cellist Steuart Pincombe and brewer Xavier Vanneste also provide a brief explanation. For those who wish it: after the second performance, you can dine in the adjoining brewery.… Read more

  • Bach 4

    This afternoon, playing together on one piano, regular Concertgebouw guests Inge Spinette and Jan Michiels take a dip in the world of György Kurtág. Just like the composer and his wife Márta, this duo combine Kurtág’s playful mini-compositions, Játékok, with his transcriptions of Bach’s choral preludes. In those works, Kurtág achieved a unique spirituality and serenity.… Read more

  • Bach & Buxtehude. Cantatas

    As usual, Philippe Herreweghe and his Collegium Vocale Gent close the Bach Academy with music by the Thomas Cantor himself. This time they set Bach’s cantata Nimm von uns, Herr, du treuer Gott alongside a work by Buxtehude, with the same text and the same melody. Remember that you can also witness the preparatory work, during the open rehearsals on 20 and 21 January.… Read more

  • South American guitar music

    Swelteringly hot and fiery characters, fast and powerful rhythms, Latin-American dances with clapping and stamping, scandalous and sensual dances: during this concert of pure South American guitar music, you can picture them all. The Cuban landscape inspired Leo Brouwer to compose a rumba. He juggles rhythm and timbre and treats the guitar almost like a percussion instrument, in a way no previous composer had ever done. Argentinian Eduardo Martin manages like no other to evoke the heat and the seething blood of the South in the sweet, warm tones of Agua y mièles and the fiery character of Acrilicos en el Espacio. For her new composition, Petra Vermote drew her inspiration from Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges. In his Ficciones he ingeniously reconstructed present and past, reality and dream.  The overall sound is an ode to the varied and often imposing landscapes of Argentina. And the naturally the tango will not be missing! … Read more

  • Poetic concert trail

    ‘It was pain itself, singing behind a smile,’ wrote Federico García Lorca, outwardly happy, inwardly torn. He didn’t write to please, but to rip open the heart and then restore it, perfected. He left us vivid descriptions of the authentic Spain, where life seems to be an instinctive battle between impossible love and the omnipresence of death. It’s as if Lorca dips his pen in the great inkwell of Andalusian gypsy and flamenco culture and then adds frivolous fantasies to accentuate. During the Lorca concert trail, we go in search of ‘duende’ - the darker soul of flamenco, the chill of the tearful smile - in the music inspired by Lorca’s writing. If it’s not in the androgynous and spellbinding voice of Gregory Frateur, or in Petra Vermote’s compelling Eco del Reloj, then it’s sure to be found in the blood and ash drenched voice of Amparo Cortés, or in the klezmer adaptations of Spanish and Sephardic songs.… Read more

  • ICKamsterdam – Emio Greco | PC

    In the two pieces One and Double Points: Two, Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten investigate the utopia of synchronicity. In One Greco confronts the compelling tones of Ravel’s Boléro. For Greco and Scholten, this music is a most vehement expression of themes such as predestination and irreversibility. By resisting and responding to the compelling patterns it imposes, Greco explores the limits of the dancing body. Two presents different aspects of duality, and the emergence of opposition and reciprocity. It’s a duet in which the dancers explore the consequences of two people sharing the same space.… Read more

  • Ballet National de Marseille & ICKamsterdam – Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten

    The international dance production Extremalism is a multi-disciplinary piece performed by dancers from Marseille and from Amsterdam. This large scale anniversary production crowns 20 years of collaboration by the choreographers' duo Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. Extremalism is about the way mankind responds to today's crisis. What does a body do in an extreme situation? Or by contrast, how does it survive in a very minimal setting? Extremalism is among the most ambitious and extensive pieces in the works of Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. In times of scarcity and cut-backs, the piece is a celebration of contemporary dance and the power of the body. 'The first dance collaboration of Amsterdam and Marseille offers a titillating combination of quality and idiosyncrasy.' — de Volkskrant****… Read more
