The Reflected Shadow
Jean Detheux meets Treviso
To celebrate the Second European Day of Early Music, AlmaMusica433 has invited Belgian visual artist Jean Detheux to exhibit for the first time in Treviso some of his work specifically inspired by Early Music.
Born in Belgium in 1946, after training at the Académie Royale des Beaux Arts in Liège Detheux moved to Canada in 1971 where he developed an allergy to painting products and started from 1997 to experiment with digital animated imagery. He has since created many intriguing images in motion synced to original music.
Some of Detheux outstanding works of art, inspired by Early Music, will be the backdrop and set the scenery for the rich programme of events scheduled to celebrate the European Day of Early Music organised by AlmaMusica433 and Fondazione Benetton.
Two beautiful works inspired by Narváez and François Couperin will be on show on the occasion of the two main concerts on the nights of March 19th and 22nd, in the striking surroundings of the Giardino Scarpa at Palazzo Bomben of Fondazione Benetton.
The concert “The Ladies and the Unicorn” (March 22nd), by French soprano Anne Azéma, one of the world's leading interpreters of early vocal music with the renowned Paola Erdas at the harpsichord, will be accompanied by a work of art conceived specifically to be performed with the voice and sound of the two Ladies.
Finally, the evocative Palazzo di Francia (via Roggia 12) will host for the entire period from March 19th to 23rd three fascinating works dedicated to the music of the Spanish siglo de oro, namely inspired by famous pieces by Narváez, de Cabezón e La Folia.
