    Holland Baroque and Wu Wei (sheng) performing ’Silk Baroque’ on 10th May 2019 in ' Jiangsu Centre for the Performing Arts’ in Nanjing (China), live.

    Arrangements by Judith and Tineke Steenbrink
    ==================================================

    Last season, Holland Baroque shared the stage with Wu Wei. The sheng improviser got so enthusiastic he invited Holland Baroque on a tour through China.

    Wu Wei is a contemporary musician who comes from an ancient tradition. It’s no coincidence his sheng case has a sticker on it that says: ‘Good things stay, new things arrive’.

    Holland Baroque totally agrees with Wu Wei’s view of life. Ancient Chinese traditions are interwoven with baroque elements and improvisations. Old music does not exist; the music is only finished when you play it. We look forward to a new meeting with this incomparable sound virtuoso.

    The recently recorded CD 'Silk Baroque' with Wu Wei is the first CD in the new collaboration between Holland Baroque and the international record label Pentatone. Check our webshop for more information.

    “It doesn’t belong just to the Chinese, it’s kind of a present for all the people.”

    Wu Wei is a virtuosic performer on the sheng, a Chinese mouth organ. Michael Fuller, double bass player with the Philharmonia Orchestra, finds out how his desire to find a role for himself and his instrument beyond geographical and musical borders led him from Shanghai to Berlin, and from listening to his father playing traditional Chinese melodies to creating new music with composers and orchestras from around the world.

    You can hear Wu Wei playing music written for him by Jukka Tiensuu (Finland), Guoping Jia (China) and Ondrej Adámek (Czech Republic) in the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Music of Today concert, Friday 5 April 2019, 6pm, at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.

    Sunday Salon takes you behind the scenes of China's classical music, featuring a different classical music luminary each month.

    Hosted by writer, author and journalist Nancy Pellegrini, the salon is made up of discussions with, and performances from, the esteemed guest. Sunday Salon has had some of China's biggest names in classical music, and this month is no exception.

    For September, Sunday Salon is thrilled to welcome back world-renowned pianist Sheng Yuan.

    Known as China’s first Bach interpreter, Sheng returns to his Chopin routes as he launches his six-year Chopin cycle covering all the composer’s solo, chamber and vocal music for piano.

    A professor at Beijing’s Central Conservatory of Music, Sheng combines scholarship with musical understanding like no other artist; the depth of his interpretations are staggering.

    This month, he plays Chopin selections and discusses his and our relationship with the composer as well as his work with Chopin-era pianos.

    Lucas Nigli - Drum Set

    Mit Wu Wei und Lucas Niggli sind hier zwei Hochenergetiker vereint, die für intensive Hörerlebnisse garantieren. Eine Art Contemporary World Music.

    WU WEI - Lucas Niggli Duo

    Sie zählen zu den interessantesten Exponenten einer jüngeren Musik Szene, die sich nicht um stilistische Grenzen kümmern, sondern mit grosser Leidenschaft sich von den verschiedensten musikalischen Welten inspirieren lassen und so eine ur-eigene Musik erfinden.
    Sie teilen die Vorlieben für zeitgenössische Musik und die Improvisation sowie für das Erweitern der herkömmlichen Spielweisen ihrer Instrumente. Neben Eigenkompositionen finden aber auch Stücke aus der klassischen chinesischen Musik den Weg in diese zeitgenössische Welt-Musik. Wu Wei ist dann auch auf der Pferdekopfgeige sowie als Kehlkopf-Sänger zu hören.

    Ihr Zusammenspiel ist geprägt von hohem formalen Bewusstsein, grosser expressiver Ausdruckskraft, flinken Wendungen, schönen Klängen, Witz und einer Disziplin, die den Improvisationen eine Dringlichkeit gibt. Der Verschmelzungsgrad der beiden Musikerpersönlichkeiten ist verblüffend, für einen Tanz auf dem hohen Seil ohne Netz und doppelten Boden auch ideal.

    Die Sheng ist durch die Spielweise von Wu Wei zu einem virtuosen Orchester geworden; man kann sie ebenso zu den Rhythmus-Instrumenten zählen, wie auch zu Melodie oder Harmonie-Instrument: es vereint in einem Instrument die ganze Spannweite eines Orchesters. Das Schlagzeug, in einem erweiterten Sinn verstanden und nicht „nur als Rhythmusinstrument verwendet, bietet mit seinen unzähligen Klangfarben und Dynamiken die optimale Ergänzung, so dass dieses Duo bezüglich Klang, Dynamik, Energie und Farbigkeit komplett klingt.

  • Holland Baroque & Wu Wei with ‘Chaos’ Jean Féry Rebel

    58

    Holland Baroque likes to share the stage with playful, inspiring musicians. Composer and improviser Wu Wei is such a musician.

    Wu Wei can do everything with the sheng, the Chinese mouth organ that represents three thousand years of Chinese music culture and that is a miracle of harmony, melody and rhythmic possibilities.

    Why does a baroque orchestra meet a sheng player?

    The actual encounter of orchestra and musical guest always takes place in the field of a shared sound world. Holland Baroque and Wu Wei connect the beautiful sheng sound with baroque music and hear that old traditions and exotic instruments can produce new stories.

    The result is a concert of new and old compositions that tells one thing in particular: Music is alive and continues to be so when creative spirits leap upon music that still has a huge power of expressiveness today. Whether that is music from Western or Eastern cultures, composed or improvised music is no longer relevant.

    Sheng means hope and hope is life, says Wu Wei. He is a modern musician who carries out an ancient tradition. It’s no coincidence that on Wu Wei’s sheng case a sticker is stuck with his motto: Gutes bleibt, neues kommt”. A motto that Holland Baroque can relate to very wel. Cherish what needs to be preserved and be open to new sounds. Because Holland Baroque thinks old music does not exist. The music is only finished when you play it.

    Program:
    Purcell, Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Rameau, Rebel, Leclair l’Ainné and Wu Wei.

    conductor: Baldur Brönnimann | Sheng : Wu Wei
    International Contemporary Ensemble

    Liza Lim: How Forests Think

    Composer's Notes

    How Forests think reflects on the work of anthropologist Eduardo Kohn who writes about forest ecologies as the 'living thought' of human and non-human selves. Each of these selves may have its own subjectivity, creating the world with its own registers of knowledge, sensation and meaning. These selves organize into communities: in ancient forests, a stump may be kept alive for centuries by the surrounding trees through underground fungal networks that nourish the old connections and keep a song going. One might think of a forest as a choir or certainly as an ensemble. Stories, dreams and thoughts inhabit multiple forms in a living matrix; they ask us to look beyond our limited human gaze and limited human time-span.

    How Forests think is music made from assemblages of instruments whose qualities are like tendrils looking for places on which to clasp and entangle themselves. Its forms are emergent, like plants growing toward light and water; like mycelial strands entwining with tree roots in a co-evolving internet of plant-life. The music emerges out of criss-crossing conversations patterned like roots, vines, fungal networks; or like airborne, insect and animal-borne cross-pollinations (the breath, the buzz, the scratch, the love songs), where one thing looks for best fit with another.

    The Chinese sheng is an instrument with a 4,000-year old lineage, and Wu Wei has been instrumental in developing the 37-pipe sheng for contemporary music. The cluster of bamboo tubes is activated by the musician's breath vibrating internal reeds, making flutters traditionally associated with the mythical phoenix that rises from the ashes of its own funeral pyre. There is something intensely organic in how the interactions between breath and reed and bamboo pipe create a flowering of sound that may not be completely predictable - one hears a trace of the wind in the forest. Neither the wind nor any weather, nor growing things can be completely controlled, contained or resisted - there is a tempest of forces that dwells in the forest. That tempest is also a song in us. —Liza Lim
