Tombeau de Couperin: an ode to Maurice Ravel

New European Ensemble presents an Ode to Maurice Ravel, one of the most beloved composers of the 20th century.

Like no other, Ravel was able to process comprehensive influences from 18th-century French Baroque to early swing jazz in varied and appealing pieces. In this concert, his work Tombeau de Couperin will be played in a new version by New European Ensemble. Other works are Sonatina for piano by fellow composer Salzedo and the groundbreaking work Introduction et Allegro for winds, strings and harp.

Mikel Urquiza was commissioned by the ensembke to write Ships Vanishing in the Horizon. Urquiza’s music, also from the Basque Country, is related to the work of Ravel. Urquiza also makes frequent use of a fierce and versatile orchestration. Ships Vanishing in the Horizon is inspired by Panorama Mesdag in The Hague and creates a musical experience of the famous panorama in 10 short parts.

Symphonic Cinema: Firebird – Daphnis & Chloé

Symphonic Cinema, the unique concert form of filmmaker Lucas van Woerkum, has conquered Dutch and foreign concert halls in recent years. The film director creates his wonderful film stories based on symphonic masterpieces of classical music, which are performed live. During the concert, he sits in the orchestra and subtly adjusts the images on the large movie screen so that they are in sync with the music. In this way he creates a work of art in which image and sound flow into a unity.

He already had great success in this way with Stravinsky’s De Vuurvogel and Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé, in which he colors the story of the music in a beautifully poetic way. These two films and pieces of music can now be seen together for the first time in one evening, in an arrangement by Thomas Beijer for New European Ensemble.

Symphonic Cinema: Daphnis & Chloé / Ravel

With his impressionistic music for this ballet, Ravel beautifully embodied the sensual and sultry atmosphere of the ancient Greek shepherd idyll. Van Woerkum’s interpretation shows that the search for true love is complicated because Chloé loses herself in ostentation and narcissism. It’s up to Daphnis to show Chloé that under her mask is a vulnerable and loving person.

Symphonic Cinema: The Echo of Being / Mahler

The latest film by Lucas van Woerkom is The Echo of Being, in which composer Gustav Mahler plays a central role. The film script is based on biographical elements from the lives of Gustav, Alma and their daughter Maria Mahler. It reflects on life, death and everything that comes after. Van Woerkum interweaves this with Mahler’s most impressive music: Totenfeier, the Fourth Symphony and his dramatic Ninth Symphony. Rarely have you experienced Mahler and his music so intensely.

Fratres – Arvo Pärt in Focus

New European Ensemble presents a multifaceted portrait of the beloved Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.

We’ll perform the central works of Pärt’s characteristic Tintinabulli style, inspired by bell sounds. This is how his Tabula Rasa, a work that heralds a new beginning, sounds like Fratres; a plea for peace and brotherhood in troubled times. We’ll play Pärt’s work Quintettino for wind quintet from 1964, his humorous Wenn Bach Bienen gezichten hätte and the beautifully tranquil work In Spe.

New European Ensemble also plays works by two young Estonian composers who were inspired by Pärt. The wind quintet Sounds Behind the Times by Pärt Uusberg, with many Estonian folk influences, and the tranquil piano trio by Riho Asko Maimets; a composer who considers Arvo Pärt to be one of his most important musical influences.
