RITUELEN VAN DOOD EN LEVEN

RITUELEN VAN DOOD EN LEVEN

We are joining the opening event of "Rituelen van dood en leven" by our friend Sergio Cruz!

De dood is een onderwerp waaraan niemand ontkomt, dat echter door veel mensen wordt genegeerd. De behoefte om de doden te herdenken is oeroud en heeft zijn uitdrukking gevonden in verschillende rituelen. Hoe de rituelen ingevuld worden en vorm worden gegeven is afhankelijk van de culturele context waarin ze ontstaan. Allerzielen, op 2 november, is in de christelijke traditie aan dit thema gewijd. Maar de dood en de rituelen die mensen erom heen uitvoeren is natuurlijk niet alleen aan religie gebonden. In een toenemende geseculariseerde en multiculturele samenleving zoals Rotterdam zijn mensen steeds opnieuw op zoek naar manieren om hun rouw en verdriet een plek te geven. Rituelen helpen hierbij. De dood en rituelen zijn altijd een onderwerp in de beeldende kunst geweest. Festival Dia de los Muertos nodigde voor zijn tweede editie zes Rotterdamse kunstenaars uit om vanuit hun eigen visie het thema Dood en Rituelen uit te beelden. Dit resulteert in een bijzondere tentoonstelling. Dit gebeurt deels vanuit een religieuze traditie, deels vanuit een kunsthistorisch perspectief of vanuit een persoonlijke en/of actueel, politieke gebeurtenis. De installaties nodigen de bezoeker uit om te reflecteren op zijn eigen omgang met de dood. En er is de mogelijkheid om zelf een klein ritueel uit te voeren.

Deelnemers: Maartje Aben (NL), Ron Blom (NL), Sergio Cruz Ramirez (MX), Thomas Kötvélyessy (HU), Judith Makkenze (NL), Alejandra Nettel (MX). Duo Kaleidoscope (JP/RU)

Wilhelm Friedemann Bach at Mosterdzaadje

Dear Friends we would like to invite you to our next concert on September 11 in Mosterdzaadje concert hall in Sandpoord-Noord. We will perform for you 6 duets by J.S. Bach's eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. This is an unique opportunity to listen all of them in one concert.

  • No.1 e-minor
    Allegro - Larghetto - Vivace
  • No.2 G-major
    Allegro ma non troppo - Cantabile - Allabreve - Gigue (Allegro)
  •  No.3 E flat -major
    Allegro - Adagio ma non molto - Presto
  •  No.4 F-major
    Allegro e moderato - Lamentabile - Presto
  •  No.5 E flat major
    Un poco Allegro - Largo - Vivace
  •  No.6 f-minor
    Un poco Allegro - Largo - Vivace

These six duets are remarkable set of the smallest chamber music for two flutes, written in the style of the end of Baroque and the beginning of Classical era. Composer treated the both parts of the flutes as equally important voice, so that while one is playing melody, the other won’t hide itself into an accompaniment. Some of these duets were composed in the tonalities that were not often used for the flute music in the 18th century (like E flat major or f minor); these tonalities have more muffled or shadowed tones than the others. This combination of the tonality makes these six duets more interesting and unique among the same repertoire.

Portraits of flutes Vol. 2

  • Zalencentrum Rehoboth, Berkel en Roderijs (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We would like to present our new program, full of colouful gems of flute duos from late 17th century to 20th century. Throughout the centuries, flute makers used different types of materials and key systems to achieve their needs, and the sound often changed from instrument to instrument and period to period. French Baroque repertoire favoured the authentic 3pieces French Baroque flute, which surprises listeners with its mild and sonorous timbre. Modern music requires a completely different, more brilliant sound.  Similarly, classical compositions are most convincing when played on instruments specific to those periods.

.

Program: Works by 

  • Michel de La Barre (ca.1675 – 1745)
  • Jean-Joseph Mouret (1682-1738)
  • Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767)
  • François Devienne (1759-1803)
  • Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
  • Friedrich Kuhlau (1786-1832)
