Bach & Berio - Free Solo
Free solo is a concept from mountaineering: climbing a steep rock face without any protective equipment. This concert day is its musical equivalent. On the one hand, the programme includes Johann Sebastian Bach’s six Cello Suites as the symbol of musical profoundness and contemplation. On the other hand, there is the performance of Luciano Berio’s fourteen Sequenze composed between 1958 and 2002 for the most divers instruments. Old and new engage in a continuous dialogue between simplicity and complexity, heaven and earth, life and death.
Roel Dieltiens will perform another tour de force by playing the entire Bach cycle in a single day. Without any doubt, he is one of the most talented interpeters of these compositions. Without bluff or ostentation, he goes to the essence of this pure and intense music. For the impressive series of Sequenze, the New European Ensemble relies on a few of the finest soloists. The range of solo instruments includes flute, trombone, violin, alto saxophone, guitar, accordion and cello.
