Creation Mark Andre


Muziektheater Transparant and the Ensemble intercontemporain’s Winterreise brings together three internationally renowned artists: the visual artist Michaël Borremans, the stage director Johan Simons, and the composer Mark Andre. Their collaboration focuses on Schubert’s song cycle about a Romantic traveller. Borremans’s paintings and Schubert’s Winterreise express a similar melancholy and solitude. Johan Simons is also a Schubert enthusiast: he has already directed Elfride Jelinek’s Winterreise at the Münchner Kammerspiele. At the request of the Ensemble intercontemporain, the French composer Mark Andre has composed a number of short musical commentaries. This contemporary Winterreise offers a new angle on this timeless work, thanks to the collaboration of artists of our own time, while at the same time the Centre for Fine Arts presents an exhibition devoted to the work of the Belgian artist Michaël Borremans.
