Introductiefilmpje Helena Tulve

Op 30 april laat Late Nigt Lab de Estlandse componiste Helena Tulve aan het woord. Onze nieuwe correspondente hedendaagse muziek, Jana De Troyer, ging met haar praten in Tallinn.

Jana De Troyer wierp Helana Tulve onder meer deze vragen voor de voeten: How “Estonian” are you in your compositions? Something that was very clear for me when I arrived, is the Estonian bond with nature. Even though we live in the capital here, you really see that people long for the forest. I also felt that this reflects into the country’s music. In how far the nature is an inspiration to your music? In an interview with Simon Cummings (FiveAgainstFour) you tell that in the beginning of the compositional process you have some kind of basic idea that you use as a structure for what happens after. Would you say that you still do this or you now go more into an intuitive approach? Or is it a combination? You have published more than 70 works. If you look at your oeuvre, are there certain pieces that are a turning point for you? De antwoorden van Helena Tulve hoort u op 30 april om 22u op Klara.
