Gregorian Festival in Concertzender Live

Opera in the 20th century: Berio
Un re in ascolto- Luciano Berio By Luc Nijs The Italian composer Luciano Berio (1925-2003) was known for his experimental work, which included electronic music. He wrote very few complete operas, but did write some operatic pieces that were used in other works. The exception was his opera ‘un re in ascolto’ from 1984.
The palace of Nostagia
Nostalgia being ubiquitous, you can experience nostalgia on a camping site, in a traffic jam on the way to the beach or when watching a disappointing holiday special on the telly. No need to get gloomy, though, for the Palace of Nostalgia will be there during the summer to provide the perfect music for these moments. Our special on the 31 August features the wit and wisdom of the parodist Stan Freberg, the comic Charlie Drake singing about the tribulations of owning a boomerang, George Formby with his ‘banjolele’, the French composer, arranger and sound wizard André Popp, a song about a race between a Cadillac and a Nash from The Playmates, and ‘the man with a thousand voices’ Mel Blanc.
Ad infinitum: Nessun gionro senza Bach
Bach is in Italy, so perhaps would should be calling him Giovanni Sebastiano Bach, in the same way as Giovanni Battista Lulli changed his name to Jean-Baptiste Lully when he moved to France. Between 19 and 30 August Bach ad Infinitum will be in an Italian mood inspired by this year’s Festival of Early Music in Utrecht. As part of the festival, the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi will be performed on Saturday 31 August in the Geertekerk in Utrecht. The soprano role will be sung by the world-famous Hana Blažíková. On Monday 19 August in Bach ad Infinitum Govert Jan Bach will be investigating the link between Bach, opera and this well-known work by Pergolesi. Bach wrote a variation (or as he himself called it, an improved version) of this work: cantata “Tilge Höchster, meine Sünden” BWV 1083. The programme will also include a performance of the original work by Pergolesi by Concerto Italiano led by Rinaldo Alessandrini and a performance of cantata BWV 1083 by the Theatre of Early Music that features Emma Kirkby. Listen to Bach ad Infinitum: Monday 19 to Friday 23 August, 13.00 – 14.00 CET Monday 26 to Friday 30 August, 13.00 – 14.00 CET (repeats)
