The Concertzender is looking for sponsors
One moment you are celebrated and the next you are forgotten. This is what happened to Wölfl, who lived from Mozart’s Vienna Quartets, KV168-173 (1773) to the premiere of Beethoven’s 8th Symphony (1812). His musical career took place in between. But until recently, Wölfl’s posthumous career was less successful than that of his two colleagues. This is now going to change. After our programme maker Thijs Bonger, in Genius Music Friends, explained how Haydn and Mozart were on each other’s nerves artistically, and while in a Stubborn Student the relationship between Haydn and Beethoven is still on the cutting table, it is now the turn of piano virtuoso Wölfl. Will it be a revival or a rediscovery? On 7 September, a new episode of An Early Evening Stroll, with a special interactive bonus that we will not give away here. So listen up, on Tuesday 7 September between 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

Since this month, the Concertzender has been stepping up a gear. Of course, you already knew where to find us as a subscriber. But our gems can shine a little more in between what else washes ashore with you. We want to increase our name recognition via social media. Perhaps you have already noticed the increased hustle and bustle on facebook, Twitter, or linkedin. In the near future, we will develop a number of media campaigns to attract more listeners.

What does a landscape sound like? On the road with Stijn Demeulenare
Wednesday September 8th between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm, don’t go anywhere. We’ve done that already, for you. Dive into our deep soundscapes by Stijn Demeulenaere from Brussels. For more than a decade, he has been making sound installations. With these soundscapes – as they are called nowadays – he allows the listener to experience with their ears what an environment, a landscape actually sounds like. Demeulenaere’s fascination for sound started during his sociology studies and at his job as a radio reporter. Pure sound, just listening to sound itself makes room for immersion and interpretation. Within that sound Demeulenaere creates artistic shapes to allow new experiences for the listener and to confront them with their own identity and history. He wants us to feel who we are and where we are by listening around us. How an ambience resonates in us and vice versa.
Janacek: composer of the month
You can live in several countries without literally moving. Take Janacek. Our composer of the month was born in 1854 in the Habsburg Empire of Franz Joseph I. That central European patchwork made a new start in 1876 as a constitutional personal union that became better known as the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy and the Sissi films. But the composer of the month of September came from Moravia-Silesia (or eastern Czechoslovakia, if you like), although he died in Czechoslovakia in 1928. Stick to Brno, and you are in the right place. That’s where the Janacek Museum is. In the heart of Europe.
