Info zu Feature

Winter&Winter veröffentlicht zum 60. Geburtstag von Ernst Reijseger das Album »Feature« (Besonderheit, Merkmal, hervorstechende Eigenschaft, Charakteristikum, Dokumentarbericht) Am 13. November 2014 feiert der Ausnahmekünstlers Ernst Reijseger seinen 60. Geburtstag. Seit 1997 arbeiten Ernst Reijseger und Winter&Winter in einer ausgesprochen kreativen Arbeitsatmosphäre zusammen. Über die Jahre sind fünfzehn Alben unter seiner Leitung entstanden und er wirkt auf sechs weiteren Produktionen mit. Sein Aufnahmewerk beinhaltet unter anderem Cello Solo Werke, Arbeiten mit den Voches de Sardinna, die Cooperation mit der Gruppe Groove Lélé aus La Réunion, verschiedene Soundtracks und Klangkunstwerke.

Reijsegers Klänge inspirieren Künstler wie den Filmregisseur Werner Herzog und den deutsch-amerikanischen Maler Jerry Zeniuk.

Herzog hat über Reijseger die Dokumentation »Ode to the Dawn of Man« geschaffen, dieser Film ist auch Bestandteil der 5-Kanal-Videoinstallation »Hearsay of Soul« (http://www.getty.edu/art/exhibitions/herzog/), die bereits im Whitney Museum in New York und im Getty Museum in L.A. gezeigt wurde. Zeniuk malt zu Reijsegers Cello Solo Stücken mit dem Titel »Crystal Palace« sieben neue Bilder. Diese bilden mit sieben Einzelpressungen mit unterschiedlichen Werken von Ernst Reijseger sieben Unikate, die im Herbst 2014 im Schauraum von Winter&Winter in München gezeigt und im Frühjahr 2015 in der Slewe Gallery in Amsterdam ausgestellt werden.

»Feature« präsentiert in einer Neuproduktion Schlüsselwerke wie »Tell Me Everything« und »Elena«, aufgenommen mit der türkischen Sängerin Ceylan Ertem, neue Werke für Reijsegers Ensemble mit fünf Celli, Duette mit Alan 'Gunga' Purves sowie dem Pianisten und Organisten Harmen Fraanje. Obwohl dieses Album in dem Zeitraum von Juni 2010 bis August 2014 entstanden ist, wirkt das Werk »Feature' wie aus einem Guss. Alle Aufnahmen wurden von Adrian von Ripka abgemischt und gemastert, der seit dreißig Jahren zusammen mit Stefan Winter hinter dem Mischpult sitzt und Ernst Reijsegers Klangvorstellungen perfekt inszeniert.

Das künstlerische Werk von Ernst Reijseger wandelt zwischen den Welten der Performance-, Aufnahmekunst und Klanginstallation. Er hat sich mit Körper und Seele der Musik verschrieben, doch sein Wirken führt über die Konzert- und Clubbühne hinaus. Er erkennt die Aufnahme als besonderes Werk, die nicht nur die Aufführung dokumentieren kann, sondern zur Schaffung von eigenen Klangbildern neue künstlerische Möglichkeiten öffnet.

Ernst Reijseger, Individualist, Cellist, Komponist und Performance-Künstler, 1954 in Naarden in den Niederlanden geboren, gehört zu den wichtigsten Künstlern der zeitgenössischen Musikszene. Sein Instrument ist seine Stimme. Seit fast zwanzig Jahren arbeitet Ernst Reijseger mit dem Produzenten Stefan Winter zusammen, und gemeinsam schaffen sie einen ganz besonderen Kanon. Stefan Winter: »Er ist einer der außergewöhnlichsten Musiker, den ich je getroffen habe und kennenlernen durfte. Er spricht und singt durch sein Cello, sein Instrument wird Teil seines Körpers und aus seiner Feder fließen Kompositionen erfüllt von höchster Musikalität, Anmut, schlichter Eleganz und Sensitivität.«

Ernst Reijseger - Cello and composer

Ernst Reijseger (1954) started to play the cello at 8 years old. Quite early in his life he became rapidly fascinated by the diverse musical formes and styles in the world available for Dutch listeners. He played/recorded a.o. with: Sean Bergin, Martin van Duynhoven, Derek Bailey, Alan Purves and Franky Douglas. Was member of the Theo Loevendie Consort, the Guus Janssen Septet, the Arcado Stringtrio, with Michael Moore and Han Bennink in Trio Clusone, Misha Mengelberg’s Instant Composers Pool , the Gerry Hemingway quintet and Yo Yo Ma.

In 1985 he received the Boy Edgar prize. The award highly regarded by potential Dutch audience in the Netherlands and higly appreciated by its receiver.

In 1995 he received the “Bird-Award” during the Nordsea Jazz Festival.

Ernst Reijseger playes duo with Franco d Andrea piano, Louis Sclavis, cl ssax Stian Carstensen , acc, banjo, guitar, mandoline,kaval and trio with the Amsterdam String Trio, Stian Carstensen and drummer Jarle Vespestadt , Trio with Eric Vloeimans, trumpet and Anton Goudsmit, Guitar and duo with Senegalese singer Mola Sylla, trio with Mola Sylla and percussionist Serigne Gueye, also from Senegal and regulary does concerts with Alan Purves in duo or in combination with Trad. Singers from Sardenia, the Tenores e Concordu de Orosei.

Projects Ernst Reijseger participates in are f.i. : A Tango/PostTango project with WDRbigband Köln With Music from Gerardo Gandini/comp/dir and Bandoneonist Nestor Marconi or a project called Barana & Co with Dutch ,virtuoso Turkish musicians and a Drummer/percussionist from Iran.

Ernst Reijseger writes music for Film and Documentarys. His written music is performed by wellrespected cellist Larissa Groeneveld and pianist Frank Van de Laar with reijseger as third ‘free agent’. At the moment he also plays a different duoprogram of his music in combination with classical cellist Jeroen den Herder. He often plays soloconcerts.

Apart from “Concerts for Adults” he likes to spend time playing for children, in schools and theatres, and does occasional “cello-workshops.

Mola Sylla, who came to Amsterdam in 1987 from Dakar and has been living in Holland ever since, plays thumb-piano and flutes. He sings mostly in Wolof, a language which has survived alongside French and which is spoken by 90% of the Senegalese. He looks to his country’s history, Moslem brotherhoods and historic figures such as Cheikh Achmadou Bamba, whose spiritual force grew stronger during his forced exile. His liberal follower Ibra Fall is also in the picture, as is the eminent scholar who gave his name to Dakar’s university, Anta Diop. He also sings about the taking of the old capital, Ndar, and loneliness in Europe, about certitudes and mourning, about the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed, and about the hopeless waiting after foreigners who never keep their word. He sings about that which is, about reassembling it and moving it around.

Ernst Reijseger is the ideal partner for such encounters, as he has demonstrated wonderfully in his collaboration with Voches de Sardinna. His extraordinary joy of playing, cunning humour and astounding dexterity are inseparable and never shown off. This project is the result of an encounter between two worlds which can now create together in unforeseeable directions. A percussive, touching dialogue charged with energy which makes it clear that communication is possible. It is not without reason that this dialogue between cultures is dedicated to Ernst Reijseger‚s daughter Janna who, like her grandfather before her, looks at us and frowns

Nederlands Kamerkoor

No purer sound than the human voice, and no vocal ensemble whose sound has to be more precisely measured and balanced than a chamber choir. The Nederlands Kamerkoor knows a thing or two about that, having been a top-class chamber choir for decades. Their field of activity encompasses the entire chamber choir repertoire, from medieval to contemporary and from a cappella to accompanied. The choir is an independent organisation, not attached to an opera or broadcasting company. As well as putting on its own concert series in a number of Dutch cities, the choir regularly collaborates with ensembles such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Asko/Schönberg Ensemble and the Orchestra of the 18th Century.

In 1937 the choir’s founder Felix de Nobel assembled a chamber choir which consisted of a number of young soloists. After the Second World War he re-formed the choir. Within a few years he had created a homogeneous ensemble in which the voices blended with each other and coalesced into a genuine chamber choir sound. Invitations from foreign festivals and from the Holland Festival followed. Having initially proposed a modest subsidy, the Dutch government followed this in 1965 with a structural one. Among the artistic highlights of this period are the multiple tours of the United States and the Holland Festival opera productions conducted by Carlo Maria Giulini.

When in 1972 Felix de Nobel laid down his chief conductor’s baton, a period of exploration ensued. The choir was ready for some innovation, and achieved this by working on a project basis with specialists in various fields. Conductors such as Leonhardt, Harnoncourt, Christie and the choir’s Flemish honorary guest conductor Paul Van Nevel, now an indispensable element in their programming, helped create for the choir a new reputation as interpreters of early music. At the same time, conductors including Ed Spanjaard and Reinbert de Leeuw led the choir in pioneering performances of contemporary music. In 1987 another chief conductor was appointed. Uwe Gronostay from Germany used his speciality – the Late Romantic repertoire – to hone the choir’s sound to perfection. His successors also set their stamp on programming: the Estonian conductor Tõnu Kaljuste with attractive choral music from Eastern and Northern Europe, Stephen Layton with stimulating combinations of British and French repertoire. There then followed another period without a chief conductor.

How multifaceted the Nederlands Kamerkoor is these days is demonstrated not only by the programmes in its own subscription series, but also by its many collaborative projects and premières of works it has commissioned. Among the composers who have written for the choir are Sir John Tavener, Giya Kancheli, Harrison Birtwistle, Mauricio Kagel, Karin Rehnqvist and Edith Canat de Chizy, as well as Dutch composers including Jan Vriend, Elmer Schönberger, Micha Hamel and Joost Kleppe. In many of the works, singers from the choir are given solo roles, proving again and again the enormous versatility of the individual choir members. Permanent guest conductor Peter Dijkstra and choirmaster Klaas Stok play a significant part in the preparation and performance of the very demanding repertoire in which the choir is well versed.

The Nederlands Kamerkoor has released some seventy-five CDs, several of which have been awarded an Edison or a Diapason d’Or. In recent seasons, tours have taken the ensemble to countries such as France, the United States, Canada, Spain and Poland. With unusual programmatic formulas, such as a semi-staged evening of Burt Bacharach songs arranged for chamber choir, or a programme of psalms in the synagogue of the Liberal Jewish Community of Amsterdam, the choir continues its process of rejuvenation. To watch over this process, and over the preservation of the precious chamber choir culture so characteristic of the NKK, the 2011-2012 season sees the arrival of a new chief conductor: the youthful Risto Joost from Estonia.
