On 9 June, our Continuo alumni and staff orchestra will perform an adventurous spring concert at De Centrale. It will be a cultural journey through Japanese butterfly gardens in a melancholic hodgepodge of blues and classical music.
’Onbegrensd’ (Unlimited) is an exploration through a broad range of musical genres beyond European traditions. Dream away to the sounds of African American blues, explore Japanese and Chinese butterfly gardens and experience images from Aleppo... In Onbegrensd, Continuo, like music itself, will defy boundaries and expectations.
In order to achieve this, the orchestra is joined by a number of international soloists: soprano Chia-Fen Wu and instrumentalists Farnoosh Khodadadeh (daf) and Ehsan Yadollahi (tar), Paul Klinck (violin), and Fem Devos (piano). Together, we will perform a multicultural program, including works composed and inspired by non-European cultures:
- Symphony n°3 - Movement 1 & 3
