Julius Eastman - Right thought, right music.

Theater im Ballsaal | 53121 Bonn

Beethoven's visions of a society with equality and without prejudice – how would a composer express it today? The vibrant American composer, pianist and singer Julius Eastman, picked up on the ideals of "liberty, equality and fraternity" and took them a musical step further also writing against racism and homophobia.

The humanist and visionary Eastman thereby referred to his composing predecessors.

Julius Eastman - Right thought, right music. Postponed to spring 2021!

Theater im Ballsaal | 53121 Bonn

Julius Eastman was a man of many talents, a composer, pianist, singer and dancer, but above all, a non-conformist who liked to walk the fine line and provoke: as a black man in New York’s predominantly white New Music scene, as an openly gay man in a profoundly homophobic society, and as an artist who ventured between a wide variety of musical genres from electronic, minimal and jazz to pop, impro and disco.

 

The TRA I TEMPI ensemble will play three consecutive concerts presenting a representative sample of Eastman’s compositions. Works such as Crazy Nigger, Gay Guerilla or Colors exemplify his critical socio-political stance.

 

Concerts at 6:00 pm, 7:30 pm and 10:00 pm
