Baroque meets musique concrète + Public Insight
Prior to the special Les Siècles concert, we present Public Insight with sound artist Harpo ‘t Hart. Join us for this two-part programme.
Public Insight with Harpo ‘t Hart – 19:15 until 19:50
In Mozart Meets Lachenmann, the latter’s modern music is paired with Mozart’s classical symphonies. When we listen to classical music with contemporary ears, what happens, what does that mean? How have Mozart’s classical compositions influenced the sound of Lachenmann’s work? Sound artist Harpo ‘t Hart takes you on a journey along seminal pieces of modern music and sound art to explore the ideas and compositions that have shaped our present-day way of listening. At the end of the day, the world around us is always changing, and so is our way of listening.
Concert: Les Siecles – 20:15
Today, French chamber orchestra Les Siècles, under the baton of Francois-Xavier Roth, plays a challenging programme of Mozart and Lachenmann. Two late symphonies by Mozart are combined with Mouvement by contemporary German composer Helmut Lachenmann, one of musical modernism’s leading figures.
