In 2011 Jean-Pierre Deleuze composed ‘Meguru’, a piece for baritone and quintet, commissioned by Het Collectief and based on the Japanese philosophy of life. To round out his insight, Deleuze composed a second ‘Meguru’ in 2019, 'Le jardin nu', this time with a soprano, so that both find themselves in a harmonious yin-yang relationship, so to speak.
This new creation is commented on by Het Collectief with an execution of Hosokawa’s ‘Stunden-Blumen’, almost the antipode of Messiaen’s ‘Quatuor pour la fin du temps’: in nature everything comes back, every end is a new beginning.
With Michel Fourgon’s wonderful tribute to Luciano Berio and with a new composition by Bram Van Camp which, as the title suggests, purports to be simply music, we shall be rounding off the programme.
