KuuB Concert: Maya Fridman

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

This concert is sold out. It is possible to sign in for the waitinglist at the door at KuuB starting from 19:30. 

Cellist Maya Fridman is, because of her versatility and beautiful performances, musician-in-residence at Gaudeamus. This year she collaborates with composer Maxim Shalygin which will result in a new piece for cello solo: Canti d’inizio e fine. A momumental cycle of 7 songs for cello and voice with the theme of Birth, life and death that goes through the cycle as a red line.

Shalygin once said: “A musician on stage is similar to a person in deep meditation, who is capable of taking the listeners along on his sacred journey.” As Fridman studied his Canti d’inizio e fine, her attention is focused on experiencing time and sounds as they slowly undergo sublime transformations.

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.

One free drink included.
