Two musical performances at the contemporary music festival in Belgium.
Ars Musica - Bruxelles
Ars Musica – Bruxelles

This year, the Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels is once again taking part in the Ars Musica‘ contemporary music festival, scheduled from 9 November 2021 to 30 June 2022.

For this new edition, ‘Ars Musica‘ will explore the voice in all its different forms and origins. Because whilst the voice is something that is common to cultures all over the world, vocal technique is often unique, serving a language, an intention or a thought.

Programme of events organized by the Institute:

  • 13 November, the concert ‘Ondes Vocales‘ at the Arsonic Mons. In 1922, Corporal Maurice Martenot, a radio operator during the First World War, filed a patent for an instrument based on an electronic oscillator. Director: Gabriel Hollander, with Anna Clementi (singing), Thomas Bloch (ondes martenot) and Giusy Caruso (piano).
  • 15 November 15, the concert ‘La parole seule’, at the Théâtre des Martyrs. The opera by Lukas Ligeti set to the words by François Emmanuel. The work will be preceded by ‘The Human Voice’ by Francis Poulenc and Jean Cocteau, in a version for piano and voice.
