    ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

    Emily von Sydow is a Brussels-based yoga teacher. Since the beginning of her practice about 20 years ago, she has seen yoga as a rigorous but joyful discipline and a lifelong path of learning. Inspired by BKS Iyengar's yoga tradition, she gives 1:1, couple and group classes, and shares the benefits of the practice also with non-accompanied minors, adolescents and pre-adolescents refugees in Belgium. She successfully teaches them to use their bodies in new ways and find calm within.

    Nicola Baroni (cello)
    Special guest Yati Durant (composer & electronics)

She'll perform her RE-ORIENT PROJECT in duo with Francesco Magarò (percussions). The two performers will be then joined by the XTREME ENSEMBLE: the pianist Erica Bisesithe cellist Nicola Baroni and the electronic music composer Yati Durant. Come along and explore something quite different.


    This concert brings on stage an encounter between two ensemble musically and ideally located in two opposite sides: at the East and at the very South. 



    MORE DETAILS:
    The Re-Orient Duo project, created by Giusy Caruso (piano) and Francesco Magarò, (percussion), presents a fusion between original improvisations on ragas and talas and a selection of the 72 Études for piano by the French composer Jacques Charpentier (1933-2017), based on the carnatic modes from South India. 

    The XTREME ensemble, composed by Erica Bisesi (piano) and Nicola Baroni (cello) will take the audience on an audio-visual voyage around the Antarctica with original pieces by Massimiliano Messieri, Mauricio Dottori, Marco Giommoni and  Marcela Pavia.

    The world premiere Saundaryalahari written by the composer Yati Durant for the unique encounter of these two ensembles, will create audio-visual interactions, stimulating a reorientation of significance, in which musicians and audiences all lose track of the North Star.

      THE VIOLIN BEGINS

      An evening with Peter Sheppard Skaerved

      Thurs 9 Jun / Music / 6.30PM

      Playing two unique historic instruments by the ‘father of the violin’, Andrea Amati and his son, Girolamo, Peter presents a salon evening of music and words from the violin’s history. The extraordinary works range from colour pieces by the Lübeck-born Thomas Baltzar, to deeply moving pieces from the 1685 ‘Klagenfurt Manuscript’, most likely written by a nun in a convent in modern-day Slovenia.

      Alongside these, dazzling miniatures by some of the dozens of composers with whom Peter collaborates. During the 2020-21 lockdown composers from around the world sent him new works, to be premiered, recorded and filmed ‘at the desk’ at his home in London.

      On the menu:

      Violins by Andrea Amati (1572), Girolamo Amati (1629)

      Solo Works  1588-1710 by Marini, Baltzar, Bassano, Matteis, Biber, Torelli, Vilsmayr, de Machy and the Klagenfurt Manuscript

      Lockdown works dedicated to Peter Sheppard Skærved.

        Grand Hotel Europa

        Thur 9th Jun / Book Club  / 7:30pm

        Join our monthly gathering around a great read, along with drinks & good company

        “...his great European novel is a page-turner ” - De Tijd

        Our June pick is an addictive masterpiece on European identity, nostalgia and the end of an era. Finally translated into English, released in April 2022. Save the date and join the book club!

        "You should put Grand Hotel Europa by Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer on the shelf next to Europe books by Thomas Mann and Harry Mulisch. Rarely have we read a novel that ingeniously links a tragic but beautiful love story with serious, but never dull, often witty reflections on the phenomenon that is Europe. […] Grand Hotel Europa is a love letter to an old beloved, a dead-tired but stunning continent." - De Limburger

        Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer is an acclaimed Dutch poet and novelist, as well as polemicist and classical scholar. He moved permanently to Genoa, Italy, in 2008.
