Constellations in Béguinage

Contemporary Classical Musical Concert

Registrations are closed

For the start of Falak 2, the New European Ensemble Quartet joined with Syrian Soprano Talar Dekrmanjian, will captivate us in the Église Saint Jean Baptiste au Béguinage for an evening where a dialogue between the classical and the modern, the Western and the Syrian emerges. 

For an interpretation between cultures and musical generations, we shed a light on the importance of dialogue, remembrance, and future with the remnants of the past.

The elegant, yet warm setting of Saint Jean Baptiste au Béuinage is the place where Lagrange Points invites you for a promising evening of music & dialogue.

NEuE String Quartet

The New European Ensemble was founded in 2009 in the Netherlands by dedicated and passionate musicians from across Europe. The ensemble has built a reputation for imaginative programming as well as ‘fantastic’ (NRC) and ‘excellent performances’ (de Volkskrant) and has been called one of the ‘Netherland’s leading ensembles’ (Nieuwe Noten).  Some of today’s most prominent composers like Kaija Saariaho, Magnus Lindberg, Mark Anthony Turnage, Bright Sheng and Anna Thorvaldsdóttir enjoy working with the group.

The ensemble’s mission is to present contemporary music and 20th century classics in exciting ways, this is why the group often combines music with film, literature, theater, dance and visual art. The ensemble’s musicians regularly work with young composers and performers at the conservatory level at the Hague’s Royal Conservatoire and at music schools worldwide.
