From its home port of Bruges, string orchestra BRYGGEN boldly sets course for the North, along the routes of the Hanseatic League, all the way to Scandinavia and the Baltic. In search of new sounds and connections with cultures all around the world. With unified forces, now moving against the current, then harmoniously bathing in the tranquillity of immeasurably deep fjords.
Wilde Westen — The Four Seasons Recomposed
Thu — 30/11/2023 20:00 Concertstudio Kortrijk
Minimal music lovers will be delighted on Nov. 30: BRYGGEN presents a wonderful program of music by Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, Caroline Shaw and Max Richter.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is one of the most important, and also the most recorded work of the Western classical repertoire. For contemporary composer Max Richter, this work has reached a point of saturation: you hear it everywhere – in lifts, car parks and mobile phones, on the radio and in television commercials, so it has lost its noticeable power vis-à-vis contemporary audiences. So the task Richter set himself was to reconfigure the listening experience to this masterpiece. And so he composed The Four Seasons Recomposed.
