The Ciconia Consort and the LAM museum (Lisse) are joining forces. In an interactive and playful program, museum director Sietske van Zanten and the Ciconia Consort let you experience how visual art and music can reinforce each other. Listen with your eyes and see with your ears.

The Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky wrote his Paintings at an Exhibition , or Picture Exhibition for short, following a visit to an exhibition of the work of his friend Viktor Hartmann. Other composers have also embraced the idea of ​​capturing concrete images in music. When composing La Mer, Debussy is said to have been inspired by The Great Wave off Kanagawa by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. Rachmaninov set Arnold Böcklin’s romantic painting Toteninsel to music. Respighi set three paintings by Renaissance painter Botticelli, including La Primavera and The Birth of Venus . And Martinu translated his admiration for frescoes by Piero della Francesca into music. Music can evoke all sorts of things, time and time again.
Classical music is often regarded as an art form that is difficult to access because it has a high level of abstraction. Images offer the listener a more concrete representation and, conversely, music gives an emotional interpretation and meaning to a story. Perhaps that is why film, musical and opera, but also musical works such as Peter and the Wolf (Prokofiev) and Till Eulenspiegel (Richard Strauß) are so popular.

Does the perception of the music change through the image? And what does the music do with the experience of the work of art? During the concert, director Sietske van Zanten will join you on a sensory adventure with works of art from the LAM collection. Watching, listening and associating from our own knowledge and interest and experiencing how our observation is influenced. Inspired by paintings from an exhibition, we would like to take you on a musical and visual journey of discovery.

LAM museum
In February 2019, the brand new LAM museum opened its doors on the monumental Keukenhof estate in Lisse. The museum is housed in an architectural gem that focuses on the visitor. The VandenBroek Foundation, which aims to enthuse people for art and culture, is the driving force behind this museum.
The LAM is an entry-level museum. The collection of contemporary art is displayed in a fresh and unconventional way. With an innovative museum concept, visitors are stimulated to actively and consciously look at art. For example, there are no text plates with information about who the artist is and when the work was made. Hospitable employees give visitors the confidence and responsibility to get the most out of their museum experience and are happy to talk to them. Watch, share, have fun and make your own discoveries. The LAM provides tools for approaching the works of art with any background, experience, knowledge or age; accessible but not superficial.
