Falling is a sixty-minute performance for soprano, electric guitar and live electronics developed and co-produced by the soprano Maribeth Diggle and composer and guitarist Ezequiel Menalled. Inspired by the “Slow Movement” and the need to repossess our time and inner tempo in an ever more vertiginous world, Falling will combine elements of text and mood in an intimate presentation format. With echoes of a modernised Liederabend and a wish to create a bridge into today’s world, Falling will attract us to the details while we keep moving forward.
This concert season Gaudeamus brings you an intimate series of concerts in KuuB, a gallery annex mutifunctional space for art and culture in a picturesque old part (museumkwartier) of Utrecht. KuuB is a beautiful venue for contemporary art exhibits, but is also particularly suitable for unusual chamber music concerts devoted entirely to the newest music. As the charismatic conductor of Ensemble Modelo62 Ezequiel Menalled is well-known to Gaudeamus. His music theatre piece Falling fits extremely well in the intimate and rustic atmosphere of KuuB.
One free drink included.
Ezequiel Menalled was a guest at the Gaudeamus broadcast at StrandedFM. You can listen to the broadcast here.
