Inside the Music
On September 18, meet Bernard Foccroulle at a musical meet-and-greet in our Fiocco Room. In conversation with Patrick Leterme, the composer of Cassandra will take an hour to unravel the secrets of his own score. Between the first vague idea and the final correction on the proof, what is involved in the composition of an opera? In what ways did Claudio Monteverdi and Claude Debussy inspire Cassandra? And what is the underlying connection between the humming of bees and Johann Sebastian Bach? Find out during this encounter, which will be followed by a reception.
