Vlaams Radio Koor — In the mood for Christmas
- 20.00 Kamermuziekzaal
The traditional Christmas concert is given a special touch each year by the Flemish Radio Choir, which places the classic Christmas carols in a very different perspective. A musical glimpse at the world in a mind-broadening manner, and a heart-warming appeal to tolerance and peace.This year, the choir has opted for a jazzy beat, offering up some unusual but surprisingly appropriate combinations! Thus the traditional Latin texts of the Missa Brevis suddenly sound quite different in Bob Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass: the traditional Mass becomes a veritable party, with groove and swing and an Agnus Dei full of blues.The composer Will Todd similarly cannot contain his passion and weaves his vocal works through with jazz rhythms. Like Karl Jenkins, he is a jazz musician in his heart and soul, but open to influences from both classical and folk music from the whole world in his compositions.
