Het Collectief - try out

21/09/2021 - 16:00 - 16:45

The chamber music group Het Collectief was founded in 1998 in Brussels. Working consistently from a solid nucleus of five musicians, the group has created an intriguing and idiosyncratic sound, achieved by an unfamiliar mix of strings, wind instruments and piano.

In its repertoire, Het Collectief returns to the Second Viennese School, the roots of modernism. Starting from this solid basis, it explores important twentieth century repertoire, including the very latest experimental trends. The group also creates a furore with daring crossovers between the contemporary and the traditional repertoire and with adaptations of ancient music.

On the eve of a short European tour, Het Collectief will play the work 'Stalag VIIIa' in the concert hall of the mim. They will be playing this piece by Tristan Murail a few days later in the former concentration camp where Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) wrote his 'Quatuor pour la fin du temps', the work that inspired Murail. As a visitor to the mim you can come and enjoy this try-out for free at 4 pm.
