  |  Van donker naar licht  |  

Production: The concert Van donker naar licht (From dark to light) is performed by ensemble and organ. The starting point is the last work of the composer Lili Boulanger: the Pie Jesu. Lili Boulanger belonged to the first generation of women to be admitted to a conservatory. She was also the first composer to win the highly prestigious Prix de Rome. Two reasons why Lili did not become as well known as contemporaries Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy are that she died young and that she was a woman. For centuries, no serious attention has been paid to female composers. Lili Boulanger deserves – still – a larger audience. Boulanger was a master of timbre and instrumentation. The Pie Jesu is an excellent example of this. She wrote it for a unique line-up, namely: string quartet, harp, organ and soprano, which provided a special timbre and innovative music. The Utrecht composer, singer and conductor Monique Krüs was commissioned to write a piece for exactly this line-up. Ig Henneman and Annelies van Parys arranged their own pieces for the same line-up, strings and organ respectivelyPart: Bauwien van der Meer: soprano, Gerrie Meijers: organ, Doriene Marselje: harp, Helikon Quartet: Stella Zake, violin, Marieke Kosters, violin, Lotus de Vries, viola, Renate Apperloo, celloDate: July 21 2022Venue: HaarlemBooking: Het Orgelfestival Haarlem and Flyer Van donker naar licht
