From Sun 22.10.17 Cage to present day
  • A feast of classical music

    Anyone who has attended in recent years will confirm it: this is a veritable feast of classical music. Classical music comes in all shapes and sizes, for every emotion and every occasion: Iedereen Klassiek bathes everyone and everything in a joyful classical-music bath. Together with initiator Klara and many Bruges-based partners, the Concertgebouw is putting together a lavish celebration, with offshoots all over the inner city. As always, we warm up with Crazy about Bach and close with the wonderful Brussels Philharmonic, this time performing some well-known classics. Invite your family and friends to this free event, so that they too can discover the power and beauty of Bach, Beethoven and Bruges.… Read more

  • Oorkaan

    What do colours sound like? Who can understand the moon? What does the sun say? Which sounds lower, a double bass or a drum? How many colours does a dream have? Glimpse takes you to an enchanting dream world, in which jazzy sounds and colourful images play an exciting game with each other… and with you. A world in which music, pictures, technology musicians and audience enter into a special friendship.… Read more

  • Erewhon. Symphony for percussion and visuals

    In Brehon - Hugues Dufourt’s symphony for six percussionists and as many as 150 percussion instruments - the composer describes the birth and transformation of sound: waves, streams, shimmers, vibrations, turbulences... Saharan drums, Turkish cymbals and Thai gongs create an imaginary landscape à la Edgar Allan Poe. Six Royal Conservatory percussionists accept the challenge of bringing this marvellous tour de force back to life 51 years after its premiere. Media Arts students from KASK add visuals to this gem, via video projections.… Read more

  • Percussion versus electronics

    Each technological advance extends human capabilities, but is also, simultaneously, an amputation. In their new works for percussion and electronics, Wim Henderickx and Serge Verstockt play with this duality. From a gentle but unsettling rustling in a pitch dark concert hall, to ecstatic drum 'n' bass and breathtaking sound fields: in three short concerts percussion and electronic instruments play the leading role. Music that is bound to grab you by the throat.… Read more

  • Bernstein, Prokofiev, Eötvös & Tan Dun

    Before Austrian Martin Grubinger arrived on the scene, percussionists stood at the rear of the orchestra. Now composers such as Tan Dun and Peter Eötvös write works for them. Dun’s Tears of Nature seems to have been written for a multi-armed octopus. Eötvös also pushes the soloist to extremes. Both are right up the street of percussion acrobat Martin Grubinger. Rarely have we seen such staggering virtuosity.… Read more

  • Et exultavit spiritum meum

    Gripping images, alternating moods and perhaps the best-beloved central figure of all time: the Magnificat has it all. The Sixteen select the finest examples of five centuries of choral music, from the magnificent polyphony of Lassus and Victoria to some thoroughly English Magnificats from the 20th century. That the choral tradition across the Channel is still very much alive is proven by a brand new work by young Englishman Thomas Hyde.… Read more

  • Pascal Dusapin: metamorphosis of an oeuvre

    For composer Pascal Dusapin music is all about, ‘devenir une autre ' – metamorphosis - in its creation, playing and listening. Whereas in the 1980s the influence of the abstract sound world of his teacher Iannis Xenakis was still clearly to be heard, Dusapin's style gradually changed into broad, lilting musical phrases. Nowadays, because of his fascination for ethnic music, he composes oriental sounding melodies as metamorphoses of authentic music traditions. … Read more

  • French impressionism

    Girl power! The four spirited ladies of Quatuor Zaïde and the solo harpist of the Wiener Philharmoniker join forces. Anneleen Lenaerts' harp brings the colours, flavours and enchanted atmosphere of Ravel’s and Debussy's perfumed music back to life. With Caplet's Conte fantastique, based on a mysterious story by Edgar Allan Poe, things get decidedly spookier. The central character is Death, who wanders the night looking for a victims...… Read more

  • Benjamin Glorieux, Heleen Van Haegenborgh & Christian Mendoza

    In the atmospheric St. Godelieve's Abbey - right next to the Concertgebouw - cellist Benjamin Glorieux brings us intriguing Bach improvisations with electronics, while new-music and jazz pianists Heleen Van Haegenborgh and Christian Mendoza bring a new twist to analogue Bach with textile.… Read more

  • Theater De Spiegel

    In a cosy play area, which is both a unique music lab and an oasis of peace, the very youngest explore sound and music. Playing, building, discovering… Big eyes, busy hands open mouths, small steps… The children are carried along, at their own pace by what they see, feel and hear. Three musicians accompany that playful rhythm. Sometimes they do nothing, sometimes they play notes, but they always delight and surprise. … Read more
