hear, Hear….LISTEN!

Artvark Saxophone Quartet & Claron McFadden

In perfect harmony, somewhere between jazz and classical music, Artvark and McFadden form a quintet inspired by texts about life, described from the female perspective.
“In lots of areas of our society, even in the Arts, most of the time the male perspective on things is projected. In this program, Artvark & Claron want to invite themselves and the audience to listen to some different angles.”
McFadden selected an interesting and colourful shade of philosophical, spiritual and humorous texts by women throughout history as a starting point for this versatile programme.

American Claron McFadden is a celebrated and versatile soprano. She graduated from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, in 1984. In the same year, she moved to the Netherlands, where she made her opera debut at the Holland Festival in 1985. As a soloist, McFadden has worked with big names such as Fabio Biondi, Michel van der Aa and The Arditti Quartet. She is also a popular soloist at the prestigious Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Bayerische Staatsoper and the Royal Opera House in London, among others.
