Bram Kortekaas: Raas's basketball

The lightning-fast Raas has been given a new basketball. He is super proud of it! His basketball is his passion and his life. Until he loses it… Raas goes after it like a spear. Would he ever get his basketball back?

Jibbe Willems and composer Bram Kortekaas made the musical listening story of Raas and his basketball in lockdown in the form of a podcast. Heritage Sinfonietta is now bringing it live to the theatre. With narrator and actor Abbie Chalgoum, an ensemble from this Limburg chamber orchestra brings together the original combination of music, words and images in a humorous performance for all ages.

  • Composer(s): Bram Kortekaas
  • Title(s) of the Work(s):

    Raas and a basketball

  • Performer, Ensemble or Orchestra: Heritage Sinfonietta, actor Abbie Chalgoum, conductor Martijn Pepels

Martyna Kosecka: Weightlessness

"Weightlessness" for chamber ensemble is inspired by the works of Stanisław Lem and celebrates the centenary of his birth in 2021. The piece takes up the theme of weightlessness and the specific abstract thinking about the relationship between the pressure described in music - "heaviness of composed sounds" - and their dispersion in acoustic space.

Martyna Kosecka: monolith|transparence

Through musical interpretation, the two opposing social attitudes take on metaphorical meaning: the traditional, stable for centuries and embodied by 'monolith', and the still elusive and volatile change embodied by 'transparency'.
