Tjolöholm/Magasinet, 8 pm

‘Alehouse Session’ (c.75mins)

For Scandinavians, no journey to England is complete without a visit to the local pub. In the late 17th century, when the theatres were closed down due to religious reasons, many of these alehouses were turned into so-called Musick-Houses, where musicians gathered to play intimate concerts for an enthusiastic and beer-thirsty audience. In this programme, the pioneering Barokksolistene present folk-songs and melodies played and sung at the time, but also more serious compositions by, amongst others, Purcell. The menu consists of folky, seducing, touching and sparkling music, accompanied by anecdotes, humour and beer!

Artists: Barokksolistene

 

Tickets: 130kr

Antonio Serrano med Josemi Carmona & Javier Colina

På egen hand har de brutit ny mark, var och en inom sin respektive genre. Nu sammanstrålar de för att dela med sig av sina musikaliska erfarenheter, men också för att ge publiken en insyn i hur spansk musik kan tolkas på ett unikt och modernt sätt. Antonio Serrano,Josemi Carmona och Javier Colina är tre exceptionella och världsberömda musiker med lång erfarenhet i ryggen. Under Change Music Festival framför de tre musikerna kompositioner av Ketama, Paco de Lucía, Lorca och andra framstående spanska kompositörer. Konserten kommer måna om den spanska musikaliska traditionen, men är samtidigt ett uppvisande av nya tillvägagångssätt i hur det går att ta sig an denna musikaliska skatt.

Artister: Antonio Serrano, Josemi Carmona, Javier Colina
