"Resonanzen"-Konzert im HfK-Musikkeller

Classic meets Bossa Nova!

"Resonanzen" concert in the HfK-Musikkeller

The premiere of the new concert series "Resonanzen" of the Hochschule für Künste (HfK) Bremen that took place in April in the HfK-Musikkeller delighted the audience. Now the second concert will take place on June 23, 2022. With the new format, the HfK and Mensa 13 combine musical and culinary delights.

"Resonanzen" presents the wide range of musical genres represented at the HfK in the special ambience of the Musikkeller, where you can experience the musicians as closely and authentically as you usually do in the urban setting of a jazz club.

Gourmets will also get their money's worth. In conjunction with Mensa 13, the HfK's gastronomy in Dechanatstraße, the RESONANZEN evenings will be culinarily designed by Jan-Phillip Iwersen and his team from the renowned Küche 13 – one of Bremen's best restaurants.

On June 23, the evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a four-course menu from Mensa 13 and continue at 8:30 p.m. with a concert featuring Alexandra von der Weth and Artem Yasynskyy.

Von der Weth is a German opera and concert singer as well as a voice coach and has been a visiting professor of voice at the Hochschule für Künste Bremen since November 2021. The soprano is one of the most sought-after interpreters of the lyric and coloratura repertoire. In 1999 she made her debut as Musetta in "La Bohème" with great success at the Vienna State Opera and in 2001 at the Metropolitan Opera New York, as well as Fiordiligi in "Così fan tutte" at the Glyndebourne Festival. Above all, her debut as Norma at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in May 2003 fascinated audiences and the international press alike. Guest appearances have taken her to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden London as Daphne and to the Lyric Opera of Chigago as Violetta.

The concert pianist Artem Yasynskyy was born into a family of musicians in Donetsk, Ukraine. He gave his first concert at the age of eight. In 2010, Yasynskyy began his postgraduate studies at the HfK with Professor Patrick O'Byrne, followed by a master's degree. He completed both with distinction. His performances have taken him to numerous prestigious stages: From Carnegie Hall to the Konzerthaus Berlin, Hamburg's Laeiszhalle, Jack Singer Hall in Calgary and the Kyiv Philharmonic. In 2021, Artem Yasynskyy also won the "Percy Grainger Second Prize" at the Sydney International Piano Competition.

Under the motto "Classic Meets Bossa Nova!" the duo gives extraordinary insights into the diversity of their art, from the Parisian evenings of the poet Charles Baudelaire to the sensual Bossa Nova melodies of Tom Jobim.
