Live premiere of ‘Altid Sammen’

Efterklang & B.O.X at Reeperbahn Festival Saturday, September 21 at Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg


 

B.O.X
(Baroque Orchestration X)

is an Antwerp-based baroque band focusing on collective creation.

Founded in 2010 by lute and theorbo player Pieter Theuns, B.O.X gathers some of today's finest virtuosi on antique instruments such as harpsichord, triple harp, viola da gamba, cornetto and sackbut.

They collaborate with a variety of artists from the indie rock scene, creating genre bending new sounds and building bridges between audiences.

"At the end of the day this was pop music, classy, sensual, exquisitely artful and unmistakably new."

Altid Sammen premiere

B.O.X & Efterklang

Back in 2012 in the Sydney Opera House Efterklang demonstrated that they also know how to stage their dreamy, chamber-orchestral experimental pop in the world’s greatest concert halls. Seven years have passed since then and since the release of their last album Piramida (4AD). But the Danes now return to the stage with new material and are performing an exclusive concert in the Elbphilharmonie as part of Reeperbahn Festival. There the audience can witness the live premiere of their seventh album "Altid Sammen," which will be released in september.

The trio, which are currently based in Copenhagen and Lisbon, will be joined on stage by B.O.X, a Belgian ensemble known for playing new music on centuries-old Baroque instruments. In addition, the concert will also feature a choir made up of the Philharmonie’s staff-an empathetic gesture from Efterklang to show respect to everyone involved in making the wheels turn in a concert hall, including those who are forgotten when the spotlights are turned on.
