Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

Music has been inspired by the spiritual for centuries, as a revelation of something greater. Suggestions of an origin and destination somewhere out of reach of humankind have always been forced on music. It appears that music is pre-eminently where humankind uses its unique capacity to surpass itself: it connects people around the globe. music moves people, it touches the soul and is intoxicating.

From Bach’s St Matthew Passion to the Symphony of Psalms by Stravinsky and the cosmic symbolism of John Cage and Stockhausen, KlaraFestival 2012 will unite heaven and earth. Expect a program that is as adventurous as it is spirited and which includes two international residencies. The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin will delight us with a sampling of its 30-year career with Bach, Rebel and Vivaldi but will also provide a contemporary excursion in the form of the belgian première of Singing Garden with music by Toshio Hosokawa.
In addition, Marc Minkowski and les Musiciens du Louvre will captivate us with a performance of the complete execution of Schubert’s symphonies entitled The Schubert Trilogy. These concerts will take place in the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels and, for the first time, also in deSingel in Antwerp and the Concertgebouw Brugge.
Furthermore, all this fine music will be broadcast daily on Klara. In addition to live commentary, they will provide background information on the programme and the theme. You can also find us on Musiq’3 and online. Through our cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union, the KlaraFestival is even available in the farthest reaches of Europe.

The KlaraFestival connects people, literally and figuratively.
