This month of may is packed with activities and will take me from Utrecht to Gent to the Barbican in London, followed by Rotterdam, Wroclaw and finally Bruges! Not one program we’re touring, but all different projects and programs with 2 of my favourite bands, Zwerm and Nadar!
Zwerm will join forces once more with experimental guitar legend Fred Frith, playing two double bills in Tivoli/Vredeburg, Utrecht and Vooruit, Gent on 10 and 11/05 respectively. Just a few days later we will head to London for performances at the prestigious Barbican Center (!) as part of the Sound Unbound Festival on 18 and 19/05. We will play our much acclaimed “Electric Consort” program with arrangements of English Renaissance music as well as performances of Steve Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint”, joining forces with the New York quartet Dither and Mark Stewart. Lastly on may 22nd we will head to Rotterdam for a performance of “Echo” with Post Uit Hessdalen, as part of the Operadagen festival.
Then with Nadar I will head to Poland for a portrait concert of Alexander Schubert at the Musica Electronica Nova festival in Wroclaw on 25/05. Nadar will also end the month with a bang with the the world premiere of Bernhard Lang’s large new work “HERMETIKA IX ‘Vox Angeli II'” on 30/05 at Concertgebouw Brugge.
Maybe see you there!
