  • Musical exploratory expedition through the Concertgebouw

    When the conductor has neatly put away his scores, and when all the musicians have left and the lights have been switched off, silence returns to the Concertgebouw. Or does it? Why do we suddenly hear strange sounds tumbling over the balcony? Why do the hallways have an air of romance? Why is Natascha, the ‘ding-dong’ girl in such a state? And why is Stradi, the orchestra’s star violinist, sitting mournfully on the edge of the orchestra pit? Luckily, there is Mario, Super Mario, he has an answer for everything. While he sets things to rights, he helps us to discover the Concertgebouw’ most hidden corners.… Read more

  • Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas & Ictus

    Set to Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, Rain (live) is one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most vibrant performances. In many ways it is a continuation of the choreographic principles De Keersmaeker touched upon three years earlier in Drumming. The mathematical structures, the persistent repetition, the geometric use of space, the art of continuous variation - everything that gradually became this choreographer’s signature is pushed to the limit. To the pulsating rhythm of Steve Reich's minimalist music - performed live by Ictus! – ten dancers are carried away by an irrepressible collective energy. An energy that interconnects them and forms a vibrant network in which breathing and speed are shared. An energy that reveals the special camaraderie that develops beyond the limits of exhaustion.… Read more

  • Resounding commitment in Andriessen and Kagel

    Merkel is a fan of Wagner, Obama listens to Bob Dylan and Putin loves folk. Can music make politicians see the error of their ways? In his minimalist cantata De Staat, Louis Andriessen uses energetic rhythms and insistent chords to raise a fist against totalitarianism. In Der Tribun, Mauricio Kagel makes a mockery of populism with oompah-pah brass and merry marching music. I Solisti del Vento set these political analyses alongside a piece by David Fennessy. A new text by Dimitri Verhulst – featuring Jan Decleir as a contemporary demagogue – celebrates the dawn of a new political era: 'The future beckons, the sky clears and even the roses turn blue. Tomorrow. Tomorrow belongs to me and you.’… Read more

  • Open rehearsal for families

    Musicians repeating a passage until it is perfect, the conductor giving directions, the symphony orchestra going all out to make everything sound exquisite: you get to experience it all from close by. Any questions? After the rehearsal, you can put them to the conductor or one of the musicians. Moreover, just before the rehearsal, an experienced music teacher gives the children a brief explanation of the musical theme to be covered. The composer or one of the musicians will also drop by to tell you a bit more about what you are going to hear. … Read more

  • Louis Andriessens’ minimalism

    SPECTRA set Steve Reich’s immensely popular American minimalism alongside Andriessens’ interpretation of it. With his Hoketus, Andriessen introduced his own minimalism, which is far removed from the detached, relaxed nature of much American minimal music, ‘with the inclusion of all the accompanying cosmic nonsense’. In this highly energetic work, two identical ensembles bombard each other with short phrases from either side of the stage. Because the musicians are playing at the cutting edge, Hoketus is also a memorable visual spectacle. Andriessen was once a key figure of the artistic circle that needled the right-wing establishment with this sort of work. He has meanwhile become an éminence grise who is embraced by the international music world. His later work - including the intimist Life - is a combination of late-romantic European music and the trendy 'American' repetitive music. … Read more

  • Adventurous concert trail for families

    Drunken chords dance to a pumping beat. Musicians whack brief motifs to and fro like granite squash balls. When the music of internationally renowned supplier of music with guts and swagger Louis Andriessen seeps into our ears, we picture it all. Seasoned with a dash of jazz, a pinch of Stravinsky and a generous shot of minimalism, musical chameleon BL!NDMAN serves parents and children a breathtaking spread of sounds. On an interactive and adventurous musical trail, intimate works unexpectedly alternate with powerful passages. And we end with musical fireworks!… Read more

  • Period instruments? Dust them off and we simply travel back in time, right? Or is there more to it? We have become so accustomed to the sound of (copies of) period instruments that we might assume that the battle has already been won. But actually we still have much more to learn. That has become very evident from the revelations of our current research into historical performance practice. And that research deserves its own showcase in Bruges. On this concert trail – illustrated in each case by a ‘classic’ - Claire Chevallier explains the sound, construction and restoration of a unique Russian piano, Chouchane Siranossian the performance of Tartini's extremely virtuoso Devil’s Trill Sonata, and Marie Ross her research into Harmoniemusik, the lively  tradition of arranging popular (opera) melodies for wind ensemble. Three mini-concerts by exhilarating artists.… Read more
