On September 19, 2015, on the occasion of the European Heritage Days and the BOZAR /Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles season opening evening, La Chambre aux échos took over the Art Nouveau building designed by the famous architect Victor Horta, for an extraordinary multidisciplinary evening.
Alongside other ensembles and performers, between 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. we performed in various spaces with our collaborators from Secession Orchestra, singers Sayuri Araida and Marianne Seleskovitch, and our composer/DJ team The Echo Makers (Davor B. Vincze and Remmy Canedo), offering a galaxy of musical events ranging from instrumental or vocal solos to a grand orchestral concert with electronic remix in the Salle Henry Le Bœuf (the “Transgressions” program at 10 p.m.). A total of 10 different programs, ranging from 10 minutes to 100, from one musician to twenty-four, summoning thirty different composers from Purcell to Saariaho.
As a tribute to Horta’s project of a “house of culture” that resonated in BOZAR’s eclectic programming to this day, and true to our own principles, we offered new listening modalities between the happening and the classical concert, centered on our trademark modern and contemporary repertoire – from Wagner to Kurtág – and branching into cinema, with a tribute to the way Stanley Kubrick restored classical music to its evocative power.
