At A Different Beat, we aim for new types of music expression. In July we had a chamber music concert which was well attended and received. And now we have another! PLUS MORE (keep reading!).

This concert focuses on the great French composer Olivier Messiaen, one of the 20th century's most mesmerizing composers. His language is unique and at times other-worldly. This one-hour tribute concert at Johan Borups Højskole on Sept 24th (kl.13) is performed by professional members of DR Symfoniorkester and guest Emma Steele (koncertmester Kongelige Kapel). In fact, I will also be playing, though I earn nothing on it so no conflict. But if you're into chamber music, this program is a bit of a rare present. At times modern and challenging, at other times exquisitely expressive.

The concert explores some of Messiaen's less played chamber music works, coupled with selections from his Quartet for the End of Time - written in a concentration camp in Protected content . Additionally there are several works by composers who both influenced him and were influenced by him.

Gratis adgang under 30 years!!
100kr to all others.

And now we have the PLUS MORE element to this day. We can get two events for the price of one!!! I have just come across a fab concert at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, called When I Will b no More, which is quite special. It's free and runs from kl. Protected content , involving a symphony orchestra, visuals, special lighting and electronic instrument and sound effects. My proposal is to take us over to the 2nd venue (across from Forum) very soon after the first concert finishes. I would like your thoughts on all this, so let me know in the coming Protected content if you're planning to come.
