    Concert and workshop

    20:30

    Theater de Regentes, Weimarstraat 63, The Hague, The Netherlands

    Early improvisation is all about reusing old material and most meaningful with those songs we have loved throughout our lives.

    The Scroll Ensemble will open the session with some of their own favourites.
    After that everyone is welcome to join in.
    We will improvise with some favourites, like the lamento della ninfa and la monica, but we also invite everyone to bring in one of their songs from their past and play or sing it for us: maybe we can all join in!

    Finally, we hope to drink to a happy and creative new year with you on the 12th of january in the “tea room” of De Nieuwe Regentes, which has been so kind to lend us their wonderful space!!!

    Nostalgia: A Song from the Past

    Singing has been with us for ages. We passed on our songs through time, teaching them to our children. Each time we found inspiration for new songs in the old, from beloved times.

    On this timeless path between tradition and innovation The Scroll Ensemble will take inspiration from Bach, Fado, Scarlatti, jazz composer Nuno Torres Marques, Vivaldi and Gerswhin to bring you a bit of the past in to the now.

    Inventions - A journey into creativity

    15:30

    Pieterskerk, Utrecht, The Netherlands

    Part of Fabulous Fringe Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht and UITFEEST Utrecht

    Inventions – A journey into creativity

    Bach’s Inventions are some of the most played pieces until this day. This music was intended didactically, not only to learn to play the instrument, but also to learn to compose, to learn to use “inventions” and work them out.

    In Bach’s time an invention is a musical idea from which you create the rest of the work. It works along the lines of the ‘paper clip exercise’ for developing creativity, where one is asked to imagine as many uses for a paperclip as possible. The item remains a paperclip, but changes in different contexts entirely. In music the great thing is that those ideas, those different uses for the paperclip can then be combined simultaneously (counterpoint) or follow each other in time in different combinations: they are the characters in a story, a story which changes them for better or worse.

    The audience experiences this directly through its involvement in creating, singing and a look straight into the heart of the kitchen of baroque improvisation.
