Notes du Travail / Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker with Jean-Guihen Queyras / Rosas 2019

On August 26 2017, Mitten wir im Leben sind/Bach6Cellosuiten, choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s latest performance, premiered at the Ruhrtriennale in the Maschinenhalle Zweckel in Gladbeck. Thanks to the ingenious architecture, the dance-like rhythmic structure and their timeless beauty, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cellosuites are being considered a landmark in the history of Western music. Anne Teresa De Keersmaekers affinity with Bach has been apparent in previous performances. She strives for a choreographic manner of writing that grasps Bach musical language. In this performance, the six suites, interpreted by world renowned cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, are danced by three male and two female dancers, among whom De Keermaeker herself. The fascinating symbiosis between music and dance uncovers both the nature of each of the suites separately as their mutual interaction within the cycle as a whole. Filmmakers Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes have been filming the rehearsals in Rosas Brussels’ studios and in the period before the opening night in Gladbeck.
The film ‘’Notes du Travail’’ will be a documentation of the unique work process in which De Keersmaeker and the dancers, by means of an in-depth analysis of the partition and together with Queyras, search for a dramaturgical and choreographical ‘translation’, adaptation and inquiry in and of Bach’s Cellosuites.

Berlioz: La Symphonie Fantastique with John Eliot Gardiner 2018 in 4K

From August this year Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique continue their commitment to the music of Berlioz, with a more varied exploration than ever: from to the swashbuckling Corsaire overture, and dazzling evocations of two ancient exotic queens: Dido (in an excerpt from Les Troyens) and Cleopatra in the eponymous cantata. With the Symphonie Fantastique completing the programme.

Held at the Royal Opera of Versailles with a unique decor designed in 1837, which Berlioz himself would have known during his concert in Versailles in 1848. Dating from the reign of Louis-Philippe, it has been restored and installed especially for this performance before being put away again. A world-class roster of acclaimed soloists join the orchestra including French mezzo-soprano Lucile Richardot.

Founded in 1989 by John Eliot Gardiner, the ORR aims to bring the stylistic fidelity and intensity of expression of the renowned English Baroque Soloists to the music of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The Orchestra has been internationally recognised for its interpretations of all the major early Romantic composers, starting with Hector Berlioz. They performed and recorded his Symphonie Fantastique in the hall of the old Paris Conservatoire, where the very first performance took place in 1830.
