8:30 pm Rememberance concert ‘Distortion, a Hymn to Liberty’ with Dirk Brossé, Sioen and Jef Neve (Memorial Gardens, Zonnebeke). Tickets available from June 2018 on www.passchendaele.be 

Three composers Dirk Brossé, Sioen and Jef Neve have created together “A Hymn to Liberty”. The title says it all. If a nation, a people was to achieve the ultimate liberty, distortion was needed. Many were torn from any restraint, no longer aware of what was up or down, good or evil. Fighting for freedom, in itself a contradiction, was the only way to live on, to survive. It has turned out to be a unique piece of music in which each composer, with his own musical language, has given a personal interpretation of the theme ‘peace and liberty’. The three composers have worked independently and in complete freedom. Their only adhesive was a distinct love for a lyrical musical language and a boundless respect for each other’s talent. The result is a mosaic of unique moods, charged emotions and refined timbres.
