This concert evening will take place at MSK Ghent.
In the darkest month of the year, we welcome a high-level visitor to Ghent. For two days, we will dive into the life and work of iconic British composer and musician Gavin Bryars.
He is forever remembered for such groundbreaking and deeply moving work as The Sinking of the Titanic (1969) and Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) - to which Tom Waits once lent his voice.
To honor him in his 80th year of life, Ha Concerts, MSK and S.M.A.K. are joining forces for a three-part program.
In the hemicycle of the MSK, the Gavin Bryars Ensemble was born in 1986. At MSK's OFF festival and precursor to the S.M.A.K., they played their very first concert.
Bag off for a re-enactment of that legendary evening. Beautiful music in an intimate setting, surrounded by ancient works of art and stories.
In a partly new lineup, they bring pieces like My First Homage and Sub Rosa back to life in the heart of the museum.
