Five classically trained musicians with the stage appeal of a rock band and an infinite variety of instruments. That’s Spark – the Classical Band. This top young German ensemble has become a phenomenon: sensational, virtuoso and adventurous. With an incredible wealth of sounds, the fivesome builds bridges between musical styles and creates extraordinary interactions. A thrilling experience not to be missed…
A few years ago they gave concerts in the Concertgebouw – Kleine Zaal and in The Penthouse, at the building where Donemus has its office. In May they gave the closing concert of the international conference ClassicalNEXT. Now the classical band Spark will be featured by the Residentie Orkest at a concert in PAARD in The Hague on September 14th.
Chiel Meijering wrote many short compositions for Spark that are recorded at their CD ‘Wild territories‘. His ‘Kiss of Fire’ is one of the most popular contemporary works at Donemus.
