Bookmark
Kamerkoor Kwintessens

Classical concert by concert the Kwintessens Chamber Choir.<br />
<br />
Here I stand.
<br />
A tree, connected with its surroundings. Rooted in the earth, its crown reaching out to the sky.
<br />
Powerful, breathing, protecting. Life passes him by. Standing still, in silence, undisturbed by destructive storms or blessed rain.
<br />
You and me, we are alike that tree. Life is passing by. Although we have the privilege of choosing; are we the creator or destroyer of our own salvation?
<br />
<br />
In this program they sing about the primal forces of creation and destruction. Dancing and falling. Healing and shredding. As in J&oacute;hannsson's piece 'Odi at amo' the two most divergent human emotions are sung: ' I hate and I love...'
<br />
<br />
Among others this program contains music from Arvo P&auml;rt, David Lang, Joby Talbot, John Tavener en J&oacute;hann J&oacute;hannsson.&nbsp;
