Blue Baroque

A musical meeting between jazz and classical

Experience a high point of the festival for all the senses when playing playful light and iconic music, classical but strongly inspired by elegant French jazz from the 1970s, exuding French retro sophistication and vintage tones. The music is delivered by classical music virtuosos, who here meet two of jazz’s tough boys in the French jazz pianist Claude Bolling’s 2 suites for flute and jazz piano trio. The suite was on the charts in the United States for more than 10 years.

Home Stirred

Poems and music

The stage is set for contemplation and mood of the author and minister Hanne Jul Jakobsen, who visited the Classic Days in 2019. It was a terrific evening and she visits Classic Days again, this time presenting her a new book: “Home Stirred – to inhabit life ”. During the lockdown, most of us have had time to sense this “being at home”. Here we will hear poems about ..from home, home work, home coziness, home struggles, homelessness, home region, home cultivation and many more, all set in a setting for music by i.a. Bent Sørensen, Telemann and Bach.

Starring: priest and poet, Hanne Jul Jakobsen, Classic day soloists and soloists from Ensemble MidtVest

Masterclass Concert

Lots of bassoons

Not many people eventually know what a bassoon is, and if they finally see one, they think it’s an oboe. The Dutch master bassoonist, Bram van Sambeek has devoted his work to spreading the knowledge of the bassoon, which among other things is an indispensable timbre in the symphony orchestra. At Classic Days 2020, he will pass on his precious experiences to some of our most talented young bassoon talents at the master class on Sunday morning. At the concert in Ulfkjær Church, the participants give a sample of this beautiful instrument’s many fantastic, beautiful sounds.

Sun. Oct. 4th 15.30 Ulfkjær Church, Herredsgade 12, Ulfborg
Free entrance
