After recording the music of the Belgian composer Bart Vanhecke (released on Fuga Libera FUG 706), Het Collectief decided to devote a second project to a young Belgian composer, Bram Van Camp. For this recording, the ensemble is augmented by the Lithuanian conductor Vykintas Baltakas, the Belgian soprano Liesbeth Devos, and three guest musicians. They perform Improvisations for Solo Violin (violin: Wibert Aerts), Music for Three Instruments, and the song cycle De feesten van angst en pijn on poems by Paul Van Ostaijen. Bram Van Camp’s music has its roots in the music of Bartók, Stravinsky, and Berg, but is also influenced by the colours of jazz. His works are premiered at international venues such as Ars Musica and the Flanders Festival, notably by Het Collectief, who gave the first performances of all three pieces recorded here.
