HGNM welcomes Nadar Ensemble to the 2021-22 season. This concert is this years Fromm residency.
Adventure, interdisciplinary and above all a strong and critical contact with today’s world through the use of new technologies. These are some of the main objectives for the Nadar Ensemble and what we hope to share with Gaspard-Félix Tournachon (1820-1910), whose pseudonym was Nadar. He was not only a well-known photographer, balloonist, caricaturist, spy, art critic and curator, but regularly organized informal “salons” to which he invited artists, thinkers, writers and scientists, thus creating a true cross-disciplinary dialogue.
For their residency at Harvard the ensemble is:
MARIEKE BERENDSEN, violin
PIETER MATTHYNSSENS, cello
ELISA MEDINILLA, piano & midi-keys
DRIES TACK, clarinets
YVES GOEMAERE, percussion
KATRIEN GAELENS, flute & piccolo
THOMAS MOORE, trombone
NICO COUCK, electric guitar
