YAM Producers Forum
The YAMsession Producers Forum turns good productions into great ones!
The YAMsession Producers Forum brings together a local young audiences production with international producers and performance experts.
The production first performs live for the YAMsession with their existing work
After they are whisked away by the producers and over the course of the next 2 days they work together to make a 'new' production
It is presented again on the final day. The whole process is followed by the audience who is encouraged to give input and reflections on what transforms a good production into a great one!
The Ferdinand Ensemble is a young ensemble with a unique line-up of
2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and 2 horns. This sextet explores different paths within the classical genre and displays a rich color palette of these three specific instrument sounds. Their musical and friendship bond was formed
at the Conservatory of Ghent, School of Arts. Ferdinand brings works by
old masters such as Mozart and Beethoven but also ventures into the interwar period with Matyas Seiber. The Ensemble does not let the new generation of composers pass it by either. During the world premiere
of Cloud9, composed by Simon Rogiest, Eline Van den Broeck takes the
role of a soloist with alphorn and French horn. The 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons and horn surround her with the atmosphere of the Alps and Swiss cowbells.
