HERMESensemble dir. Ed Spanjaard

Vanhecke, Brewaeys, Filidei, Manca

Transit will have a colourful opening this year, with works for large ensemble and soloists. It’s even an Italian-Flemish evening, neatly divided with two composers on each side.

The concert runs the gamut from the mischievous subtleties of the trumpet concerto Ballata no. 5 (2015) by Francesco Filidei to the dark but transcendent colour of Eppur si muove (2014), the last work Luc Brewaeys was commissioned to write by our festival. And the brand-new work by Bart Vanhecke, which will premiere here, promises to be just as dark, going from the title Pour que la nuit finisse and his choice of low-register instruments.
