Holland Baroque & Wu Wei @ Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ
Nov 23 @ 20:00 – 22:00

Wu Wei

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. This Chinese mouth organ that represents
three thousand years of Chinese music culture is a miracle of harmony, melody and
rhythmic possibilities.

What would have happened if this wonderful instrument had found its way through the
Silk Road to Venice, or to the remote places Telemann visited during his travels through
Central Europe? What stories would Vivaldi or Telemann have told with it?

Holland Baroque and Wu Wei connect the beautiful sheng sound with baroque music and
show that old traditions and exotic instruments can produce new stories.

Old music does not exist. The music is only finished when you play it. We are looking
forward to meet with this unique sound virtuoso.

Program:
Purcell, Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Wu Wei
Sat 18 Nov – ‘s-Hertogenbosch , Muziekcentrum De Toonzaal
Sun 19 Nov – Zeist, Slot Zeist
Wed 22 Nov – Utrecht, TivoliVredenburg

This is not what I expected

CinemAsia Special Screening
Samen met Rotterdam Chinese New Year (RCNY) en KINO Rotterdam organiseert CinemAsia de Special Screening van THIS IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, de verfilming van de roman “A Long Time Coming” van de gerenommeerde web-auteur Lan Bai Se.

“This is not what I expected” 喜歡你 (China, 2017) van Derek Hui 许宏宇
Lu Jin (Takeshi KANESHIRO), CEO van een internationale hotelgroep, is een man die men graag haat. Gu Shengnan (ZHOU Dongyu), sous-chef van het Rosebud Hotel, is ook geen sociale lieveling, zij is slordig en onverzorgd. Haar pad kruist dat van Lu Jin als hij bij het Rosebud hotel incheckt om het grondig door te lichten in verband met een eventuele acquisitie. Hij is ontevreden over alles wat hij ziet, maar een nonchalant aangemaakte snelle hap uit de handen van Gu is een openbaring voor hem. Hij begint gerechten bij haar te bestellen en zij kookt voor hem. Ontmoeten doen zij elkaar niet. Elk treffen tussen hen buiten deze setting is een catastrofe, zij zijn aardvijanden van elkaar, totdat hun echte identiteit onthult wordt.

What do you think? :)
