Podium

“I have really enjoyed the three concerts of such a high level and so full of novelties… cosy, small scale, close to the musicians and literary performers. In order to have heard and seen everything I would like to hear all three of them one or more times more!”

Kristien Rohaert, participant at the Astria Festival in Vichte, where Uncover My Love, Confrontations and Geloof mij maar niet premiered.

Confrontations

Confrontations
Music cross-overs with oboe

Johann Sebastian Bach confronted with Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Dirk Brossé and Dobrinka Tabakova. In spite of the contrasts there is a beautiful balance between the melancholic oboes and the percussion mallets on the one hand and baroque music and minimalistic garlands of music notes on the other.

Performers: Astria Oboe Trio, As One (percussion)

Geloof mij maar niet

Geloof mij maar niet
Music cross-overs with oboe

Fairy tales by Godfried Bomans in combination with atmospheric music composed by Erik Desimpelaere. Gnomes, stupid and clever kings, beautiful princesses and a cute jester each get their musical theme, which adds a dimension to the text.
