“Eye Music” Concert with Quint Buchholz and Canzone 11

On September 29 and 30, 2018 the Munich-based Vocal Ensemble Canzone 11 will once again bring to life the multifarious art form of the madrigal. On two evenings, the group of singers directed by music instructor Tanja Wawra will give two concerts, presenting emotional, virtuosic and curious choir music by the early composers Michelangelo Rossi and Clément Janequin, as well as pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, John Hoybye and Jaakko Mäntyjärvi.

This exceptional choir performance will be accentuated by a projection of pictures by Quint Buchholz.

More information about Canzone 11 and about the upcoming events can be found on the vocal ensemble’s website. And for a little pretaste, here is a video recording of Janequins “Chant des oiseaux”, performed by Canzone 11 during the “Eye Music” concert in June 2016.

 

 

“The twenty-person choir, their director Tanja Wawra and the projections by the painter and graphic artist Quint Buchholz are a discovery […], an addictive melange of English, French, and Italian compositions from the golden age of the madrigal” (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 6 June 2016)

On this occasion they will talk about the idea behind the book, and the music pedagogue will perform a number of pieces from the collection.

Quint Buchholz will also be present the day after, when author and illustrator Anke Bär from Bremen will read from her new book “Cherry Thieves or When the War Was Over” (“Kirschendiebe oder als der Krieg vorbei war”, Gerstenberg Verlag, 2018) at the same bookshop.
