Rubén Lorenzo 
European and Spanish
Music for Piano

Wednesday 18 October 19:00

Numerous reviews have always highlighted his elegance, beauty of sound and communication skills in the musical discourse, as well as the virtuosity in his performance. In the beginning, Eduardo Fauquié wrote of him:

“[...] he came to demonstrate that he already is a great pianist.”

“[...] a pianist of great essence.” and more recently: “[...] one of the most chilling and emotive piano performances one remembers.” (Luis Alfonso Bes, Heraldo de Aragon).

German critics write: A commendable performance hats-off to the soloist! (Katrin Seidel, “Leipziger Volkzeitung” 1995) and in France – “[...] the Spanish pianist became an ambassador of his country’s musical heritage” (J.Lukas, La Terrasse Nov. 2007)

Nag op 'n Kaal Plein
Method Actor's Theatre Company & Brooklyn Theatre

Evert van Niekerk (Violin)

Saterdag 11 November 18:00 &
Sondag 12 November 15:00

Dolf van Niekerk se Nag op ‘n kaal plein, volgens T.T. Cloete ‘n ”Afrikaanse poëtiese pronkstuk en juweel”, word deur middel van viool- en toneelspel vertolk.

In Nag op 'n kaal plein verwerk Van Niekerk die visioene en drome van sy jeugjare op sy geboortedorp, Edenburg, wat hy weer intens beleef na 'n besoek veel later in sy lewe. Sy inspirasie vir die bundel kry hy toe hy in die nag op die kaal dorpsplein staan en weer die mense, ervarings en herinneringe van die verlede herleef.

Die bundel is vol gedigte oor die misterie van die lewe en die wonder van die dood. Die gedigte het nie titels nie, slegs nommers, en kan dus aaneenlopend gelees word as slegs een gedig met 26 dele. Die gedigte kyk terug na die herinneringe van die jeug, maar vanuit die jeug kyk dit ook vorentoe na die einde, sodat die relevansie van 'n lewe oor en weer gekaats word en daardeur groter perspektief verkry.

In die bedrieglike eenvoud van die taal en beelding lê veel van die bekoring van die bundel opgesluit.

19 November 15:00

'n Gannaput storie deur Willem Vogel

In 2016 is daar 'n Musicula Feeskonsert van stapel gestuur. Dit is met groot entoesiasme deur die publiek begroet.

Vanjaar sien die produksie heel anders daar uit. ’n Opwindende storielyn word vertel deur die stemkunstenaar, Suzette Eloff, aangevul met rympies van Philip de Vos, soos getoonset deur Albie Louw en verwerk vir Salon Ensemble deur Willem Vogel. Die sopraan, Marina Botha-Spies is Prinses Gerda van Gannaput en die tenoor, Tinus Spies is Gomverdorie, die kabouter.

Musicula leerders tussen 5 & 6 jaar oud is die sterretjies van hierdie geleentheid. Die hoogs professionele Brooklyn Theatre Salon Ensemble bestaande uit fluit, viool, klarinet, tjello, klavier en kontrabas, soos verlede jaar, weer aan boord om fleur te verleen aan hierdie spoggerige konsert.

Musicula maatjies, vorm deel van die spesiale orkes met slagwerk en stem, dansies en lyfperkussie.

Hierdie is voorwaar ’n prettige uur van vermaak vir oud en jonk wat die omvang van die musikale werksaamhede, asook betrokkenheid by die gemeenskap, van die Brooklyn Teater ten volle uitlig.
