Subtile invites you to its new classical music recital by the Camérata de Luxembourg on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March 2022. On this occasion, the trio formed by Stanislas Adam, Sébastien Dendal and Gérard Adam will combine violin, cello and harpsichord to offer a subtle echo to the current exhibition (paintings and sculptures) in our gallery. The programme will start with two well-known pieces from the baroque repertoire with Pachelbel and Corelli, before plunging back into modernity with the music of Ravel and, to finish, two touches of more contemporary music with an unpublished version of Ennio Morricone’s famous theme from the film “Le Professionnel” and, finally, the jazz piece “summertime”, for which Gérard Adam will bring out his famous trumpet. Pachelbel expresses the sounds of the sacred, Corelli those of madness, Ravel the fragility of man and the meanders of his feelings in the resolutely contemporary piece.
At least one hour of a timeless journey with outstanding musicians.
Stanislas Adam already gave us the pleasure of making his violin vibrate in the gallery last year to the great pleasure of a conquered public.
He began learning the violin at the age of five and from an early age performed in chamber music concerts given by the Ensemble Orchestral de Belgique, under the direction of his father Gérard Adam. He continued his studies with the violinists Emmanuel Koch, then Konzertmeister of the Maastricht Philharmonic Orchestra, Bruno Bacq, second violin conductor in the same orchestra, and Jean Hervé, Konzertmeister of the Belgian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra. He has also taken various master classes with the violinists Jean-Pierre Wallez and André Siwy. He holds first prizes in violin and music theory from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, the Colonel de Bisschop and Madame Matthijsen prizes from the same Conservatory, and the Thirionet Foundation prize. In addition to his activities as a legal advisor in the office of the President of the Court of Justice of the European Union, he founded the ensemble ‘Camerata du Luxembourg’ with the pianist Andrew Thomson, with whom he performs regularly in Belgium and Luxembourg.
Sébastien Dendal started playing the cello at the age of 6 at the Academy of Mons. At the age of 15, he began his higher studies at the Royal Conservatory of Mons where he obtained a first prize in music theory. After winning first prize in the Belfius-Belgium competition, he decided to go to France to perfect his skills at the National Conservatories of Lille and Paris, and at the age of 9 he obtained a gold medal in cello and chamber music. He then continued his training in various masterclasses with teachers such as David Cohen, Roland Pidou (FR), Raphael Perraud (FR), etc…
