Incl. concert ticket

‘SFIs’* are film impressions several minutes long. Based on testimonials by musicians who gave early performances of the works by Shostakovich and Britten, they give a short but insightful picture of the context of the genesis of these pieces. They bring the music back home, as it were, and allow the contemporary listener a good unabashed look behind the scenes. 

The SFIs are a part of the total experience of the concerts and will be shown before each of the works in question is performed.

Video artist: Lise Bruyneel / Dramaturgy & concept: Pieter Bergé

 * Short Film Impression



Lise Bruyneel

Lise Bruyneel, or La fabrique des regards, navigates across the borders between the visual and performing arts, with interdisciplinarity as a driving force behind her. Through her experience as a cello player, art historian, dramaturge and her background in visual communication and graphic design, she connects different art forms.

Her scenography binds the musical ‘last words’ from the performance as a visual common thread.
