On Saturday the 6th of April 2019 at 8pm, wind orchestra Auletes, conducted by Paul van Gils, will give a special concert together with famous astrophysics professor Vincent Icke. Auletes will perform music in the theme ‘the universe’, while Vincent Icke will provide insights in the current state of knowledge within this subject.
For years, the universe has been a big source of inspiration for composers. Pieces such as ‘Mars’ and ‘Jupiter’ from Gustav Holst and ‘Mercury’ from Jan van der Roost fit perfectly in the theme. Thomas Doss’ ‘Sidus’, a beautiful piece about space travel, will fill in this evening even further.
The evening will result in a magnificent combination of music and science, which will take you on a journey through the cosmos.
All this will result in an evening where science will be connected to classical music, taking you on an exciting journey through the universe.
The following works will be performed:
|The Planets: Mars, the Bringer of War||Gustav Holst|
|The Planets: Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity||Gustav Holst|
|Mercury||Jan van der Roost|
|Sheltering Sky||John Mackey|
Prof. dr. Vincent Icke is an astrophysicist, artist, designer and writer. Besides being active in pure research, he attempts to make science accessible and understandable for the general public. He is a regular guest on broadcasting programs, such as Nieuwsuur and De Wereld Draait Door. His publications have appeared in leading scientific journals, and in daily and weekly papers. Icke wrote over a dozen books and appeared in several cd-videos. His expertise as an artist boosts the imagery of his presentations.
