JAMMER! Door de corona-maatregelen van de overheid moeten we dit festival uitstellen tot 29 december 2021.
Havana, Cuba’s capital, lives and breathes music. Under the Caribbean sun, a lively people use music to rail against the unpleasantness/unruliness is ok also that life has thrust upon them. The cheerfulness and humour of Cuban music will be a festive way to end 2020. A mini festival featuring music by the first Baroque composers who emigrated from Spain, the typical sounds of the zarzuela (Spanish-language operetta) as well as the music of today. The mini festival will come to a close with a dance party in the Entrance Hall.
Michael Gieler, artistic director of Music Stages: 'Mirelys Morgan joined the Concertgebouw Orchestra a few years ago. She had a sweet, charming sound. Her body sometimes seemed fluid, so relaxed. My fascination with Cuba and the Caribbean began upon her arrival. Soon after, I met a very talented young Dutch conductor, Leonard Evers. He too had a great interest in Cuba and is full of wonderful ideas. We're teaming up to throw an unforgettable end-of-year party.’
* Leonard Evers and Elisabeth Caballero will only appear in the Muziekgebouw.
