Masterpiece: Take Out Obrecht

The classical concert format is broken open by projecting an existing piece of music outside the concert hall. Musical principles of fragmentation, looping, re-composition and soundscaping, in collaboration with composers, artists, amateur musicians and local groups, are used to transform a familiar masterpiece into surprising musical interventions in public spaces. These interventions also invite tourists or casual passers-by to enjoy the performance of the original masterpiece in concert later in the same week.

In 2018 we are going to work with the Missa de Sancto Donatiano by Jacob Obrecht, that will be performed by The Tallis Scholars on Thursday 10 May 2018 at Concertgebouw Brugge.

Coproduction Concertgebouw Brugge - Musica, Impulse Centre for Music in collaboration with Stedelijk Conservatorium Brugge
