Concerts for small audiences

The cultural landscape has been disrupted for some time - the hunger for live music experiences is growing ...

 

Once the figures and measures permit, we are happy to play these concert programs with 2 or 3 musicians in chapels, big living rooms or other cosy venues.

 

These 3 concert programs have been premièred in 3 livestream concerts in february and march of this year.

In the second half of the 19th century, musical life often took place in the salons of the wealthy Parisian class. In many manor houses an art harmonium was present. This instrument has a wide range of options for filling in / replacing other instruments. In that time various composers liked the harmonium a lot and wrote pieces especially for this instrument.

In the concert program "Salon", Griet and Bart apply the practice of that time and bring beautiful Flemish and French songs to your living room, small concert hall or chapel. Together with your select guests you can enjoy this intimate choice of music!

 

Music by Lemmens, Mortelmans, Hahn, Karg-Elert and Franck.

Musicians: Bart Rodyns, harmonium - Griet De Geyter, soprano

With an intriguing set of instruments and a beautiful singing voice, Griet, Bart and Nicolas give an insight into the eventful love life of Clara. As Robert Schumann slipped into madness, she reveled in the platonic (?) Expressions of love from the much younger Johannes Brahms.
This concert is a beautiful musical love game, singing about the dark dreams, the careful play of attraction and rejection and the intense desire. The silent lovers decided to destroy their correspondence, but a few letters came to us and speak plain language: "My beloved Clara, you are so infinitely dear to me that I cannot find words for it."

Tribute to Clara Schumann:
Her life reads like a book. This very talented pianist, formed by her tyrannical father, married Robert Schumann in 1840, much against the wishes of his father. It was not easy to stand next to her husband as a pianist. She was highly regarded as a composer, but in that area too she did not receive the recognition she deserved. The time was not right. What was once a happy time became more and more complex. It's no secret that the other pianist-composer Johannes Brahms was also in love with Clara ...

Music by Clara, Robert and Johannes. With an insight into the life of this special woman.
Posthumously, but never too late.

Musicians:

Griet De Geyter, soprano

& ZEITSPIEL : Nicolas Callot (piano) & Bart Rodyns, (harmonium)

The 16th century was a Golden Age for song, especially in Italy. But also in England, where the eloquence of poets such as Shakespeare and Spenser was matched in a very original way in the compositions of Dowland (1563-1626) and his contemporaries. The lute songs quickly became a national hit, with more than 600 contributions between 1597 and 1622. The fact that these songs can still be so moving today is perhaps due (or due) to the simple fact that they appeal to our universal feelings and emotions.

 

The first collection of Dowland lute songs appeared in 1597, setting the standard for the lute member. Despite the success and the arrival of two more song collections, Dowland felt misunderstood. Is that why many of his songs are quite dark and melanchological? Semper Dowland, Semper dolens (always Dowland, always sad).

Music by John Dowland.

Musicians:

Griet De Geyter, soprano

& Sofie Vanden Eynde, lute
