Beyond Thrace (Midnight Concert)

The Midnight Concert closes the Night of the Park. During his previous appearance at Oranjewoud in 2018, the versatile cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras performed pieces by Bach. This time around, he will be showing us his adventurous side. ‘Thrace is a beautiful metaphorical description of our work, which aims to bridge different musical cultures that are only separated from each other superficially.’

The landscape of Thrace formed the inspiration for Queyras’s project with the Chemirani brothers, whom he has known since his youth in Haute-Provence. He became a cellist who is in great demand worldwide, while the brothers learned the art of the zarb and daf, instruments from Iran and the surrounding area. Years later, the old friends reconnected musically and in this performance, they take us on a journey to a fascinating world, through improvisation and music from the Mediterranean, from the northeast of Greece to the Balkan and from parts of Bulgaria and Turkey, with some contemporary sounds thrown in too. Sokratis Sinopoulos’s lyre closes the unique dialogue between the musical traditions of the East and the West. Meanwhile, the musicians continue their wondrous journey – past Thrace and past the Bosporus to Turkey, Armenia, and from Persia to India – and invite you to join them on their musical voyage.
