Hey hey fellow Meet Maastricht lovers!
It is almost the end of September and you still haven’t had the chance to attend one of our events? Don’t worry, set your reminders for the 29th of September because you can join our most amazing and biggest event of the month!
Music is beyond any doubt the nourishment for the soul, for some more than others, but either way, it has an important place in everyone’s life. The same could be said for films as well and we thought what would be better than music or film… and we have brought you MUSIC AND FILM TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME!
What is included in this beautiful evening?
-The kick-off of the new season, the Dutch première of Vivo, composed by the Finn Magnus Lindberg for the New York Philharmonic, will be the prelude to Stravinsky’s Suite No. 2.
-Violin Concerto by Danish composer Carl Nielsen (AND MY FAVOURITE PART: Solo part performed by Baiba Skride!! She already deserves and applause as Gramophone puts her style in these words: ‘She has an astounding purity, accuracy, and clarity…’ We couldn’t agree more!
-Are you ready for the cross-over between Music & Film?
-Cineaste Lucas van Woerkum translates Ravel’s age-old love story Daphnis et Chloé to the silver screen. It is done in such a unique way that he is known worldwide. It could definitely be a lifetime experience for you, don’t miss it!
-The show continues with Ravel’s ballet, accompanied by Van Woerkum’s contemporary film about the love of two young people. Why don’t you take your loved one to this special and amorous atmosphere? 😉
-Afterwards, Van Woerkum takes place on stage in the middle of an orchestra consisting of over 90 musicians.! He edits the moving images into film in real time, displayed on the large, silver screen. Lucas decided to use the iPad as his instrument for the image transitions with specially developed software of his own design. Sound incredible, right?
After all this explanation, the title of the event makes more sense in which music and film compose an entirety of uniqueness. 🙂
We hope to see you there!
Catch you later, Yaren
