Missa, a brand new album with songs from the like-named, successful production of Musica Extrema. Missa is a mass in 11 parts about the arise of Holland. The music is a combination of classical music, jazz and world music. The Dutch lyrics are written by no one less than Jan Rot. The music is composed by Ben van den Dungen and Wim Warman.
Missa tells the story of the fight against the water of the Dutch people, the origin of the cities in Holland with its much spoken tombs, Jacoba van Beiren, the Hoekse & Kabeljauwse twisten and the terrible natural disaster the Sint-Elisabeth Flood.
All songs from this production are collected on this album. The orchestra Musica Extrema (Tanya Schaap, Ben van den Dungen, Gert Wantenaar, Sebastiaan van Bavel, Vasillis Stefanopoulos) and three vocalists (Claudia Patacca, Erik Slik, Jan Willem Baljet) take you back in history. Back to our story, the story of the arise of Holland.
Order and listen Missa through:
Next month starts the new musical program of musica Extrema: Amor.
The book by the Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez,
‘About the devil and other loves’, inspired Musica Extrema to make a
music program. The gripping story of the
untouchable and beautiful Sierva María is about romance,
drama and love. In Amor this story is told and musically
reinforced by the idiosyncratic ensemble Musica Extrema. U
will be taken by a dramatic story and by the
most beautiful South American melodies and songs.
Amor is Musica Extrema’s ninth theatre programme. Since the
set up in 2003, the group has undergone a development which has been in progress since its
least remarkable. The orchestra has played on practically all major and
small concert venues in the Netherlands, but also abroad they
have already been introduced to this ensemble several times.
From September Amor can be seen throughout the country.
From September the Ben van den Dungen Quartet will be back again. With their “Tribute to John Coltrane” they will be touring throughout the country in various clubs and theatres.
In the sixties ‘Trane’ formed a new quartet and took a new direction. An immediate change in the jazz music of the sixties was the result. Modal jazz was born with famous albums like ‘Impressions’ and ‘A Love Supreme’. In “A Tribute to John Coltrane”, the Ben van den Dungen Quartet presents a dazzling ode and a contemporary interpretation of a repertoire that is rightly labelled ‘classics’.
See you soon!
