Klas Torstensson: Licks & Brains II

Klas Torstensson: Licks & Brains II

A very varied programme, with soprano Katrien Baerts, conductor Bas Wiegers and Asko|Schönberg: Bulsink, Hilli, Torstensson and Tulve.

Recently the Volkskrant called Bas Wiegers 'the growth brilliant among the conductors in their forties in The Netherlands'. The occasion was a concert in the ZaterdagMatinee, in which Bas Wiegers and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra gave a thrilling performance of Prokofiev's Sixth Symphony. This time, with Asko|Schönberg, Wiegers ventures into what is considered his speciality: contemporary music. It promises to be a varied sampling. The Estonian Helena Tulve, for example, practices acoustic alchemy with influences from French spectralism, Gregorian chant and Eastern music. Her work Lijnen, on texts by the Flemish poet Roland Jooris, wholesales in iridescent timbre mixtures.

The concert closes with the labyrinthine 'classic' Licks & Brains II (1988) by the Dutch-Swede composer Klas Torstensson.
