Badings Belicht

In this recital, the ears will be tuned to folklore, rhythmic expressions, warm sounds and electronic participation. It promises to be a true adventure where the viola and the piano are heard together in its richness, warmth and versatility. Duo Buruk-Wieringa play this experience that takes you from Hungary to a world premiere in The Netherlands.

Inspired by folk music, Béla Bartók was influenced for his compositions by the folklore he encountered high up in the Hungarian mountains. The strong, rhythmic expressions and folk-like dances blew over to the Netherlands with a fiery wind. The Hungarian-Dutch composer Géza Frid expresses his Hungarian heritage and, with his Sonatina for viola and piano, seems to blend effortlessly with the Dutch musical heritage of the past century.

Henk Badings' impressive Viola Sonata seems to be a forgotten gem. Badings was a prominent composer and contributed to multifaceted oeuvre as a composer and engineer. He took an experimental approach to electronic music. In response to Badings' innovative composition techniques, composer Oscar van Dillen is writing a new work for viola, piano and electronics, written especially for the Badings Belicht series. In his composition Ichnofossils, Van Dillen surrounds the audience with sound projections and immerses you in the music together with the performers.

Duo Buruk-Wieringa takes you on a true viola-piano adventure and performs an impressive world premiere of Van Dillen's Ichnofossils.
