Thursday 6 JUNE 2019 - 19:00

Address : Museumssaal, Museum Überlingen, Krummebergstraße 30 - 88662 Überlingen Germany

Bodenseefestival : Aufbrüche (Departures) - Piano recital

Hanna Bachmann, piano
Program :
- Lodewijk Mortelmans : Jeugd, Memories
- Ludwig van Beethoven : Sonate in c-Moll Op.10/1
- Peter Benoit : Suite Op.34 Nr. 3
- Sergej Prokofiev : Sonate in A-Dur Op.82
Two unjustly forgotten Belgian composers of late romanticism are to be discovered: Peter Benoit, revered by his fellow countrymen as the "father of Flemish music", and his pupil Lodewijk Mortelmans wrote incredibly atmospheric piano miniatures. The young Austrian pianist Hanna Bachmann combines these rarities with repertoire classics: first Beethoven, whose early Sonata op. 10 No. 1 seemed to his audience to be ingenious, but also a little bizarre. Then Prokofiev with his stunningly virtuosic Sonata op. 82. It was allegedly inspired by a musical novel by Romain Rolland, in which Beethoven's piano sonatas play an important role.

Belgian music of the 19th century

Between adoration and oblivion

The Belgians should be just about the least proud people in Europe when it comes to their own classical musical heritage. Names of great composers from Dutch music history are often only known because squares or streets have been named after them, or because they have a statue here or there. And even if we know names like Fétis, Gevaert or Gilson, we have to admit that there is little music that spontaneously comes to mind. Are we therefore not obliged to take a closer look at our own music history?
We are already taking up the challenge!
Belgium was able to occupy a unique place in European musical life: squeezed between France and the German-speaking world, its composers processed influences from both musical cultures into a unique mixture that might even be called "Belgian". In this course we will discuss national music, from the birth of Belgium in 1830 until the end of the First World War and its immediate aftermath. We sketch the portraits of a number of composers against the background of Belgian history and look for the cultural-historical value of the musical heritage that we can call our own. Along the way we get to know the oeuvre of composers such as: Guillaume Lekeu, François Fétis, François Servais, Henry Vieuxtemps, Joseph Ryelandt, Joseph Jongen, Adolphe Biarent, August De Boeck, Paul Gilson, César Franck, Lodewijk Mortelmans and of course not to forget: Peter Benoit.
