"Unbelievable beautiful!."

Ingrid Reuter:

"I was lucky to attend a performance of An Enlighted Disciple of Darkness in Tallinn in August. Being an opera lover from Frankfurt I am meanwhile used to modern but yet melodic music which reminded me a bit of Philipp Glass, but I heard also the beginning of Rheingold and in the end an allusion to Hitchcock's Psycho. Especially the young soprano was very good. I would recommend this opera to be performed for Oper Frankfurt because we have the audience that appreciates such works. Thank you so much for not another Magic Flute but for eight magic flutes! Regards from Ingrid"

"From what I have seen from the reviews there was a lot of hallelujah... harmonious music... the special atmosphere due to the non earthy sound of a flute ensemble... Arvo P?rt telling that it was a composition of great value, etc. They all praised both composer, flute orchestra and singers..."

"Realy enjoyed the Minimal pieces as well Debussy. With those low tones the ensemble changed into an orchestra. It was also very beautiful to watch the interaction of the musicians."

"This is a very short, very deep and very thankful note for your absolutely amazing and awesome performance with BLOW UP yesterday. I truly cannot compare the experience with any sound performance in my past. Eight 'fluits', Eight Musicians, with the sound of a complete orchestra? When this was suggested in your introduction, it was impossible to imagine. Experiencing this performance was a spirtual, uplifting and gracious hour in my life. Trying to rationalize that what I heard and what I saw was all in a 'breath' is incomrehensible, I will never forget it. So, hartelijk dank, for this performance. Wishing you all good health to keep going!! all the best wishes, Carol"

"Een verrassend koor van fluiten in bijzonder repertoire!"

Fluitoctet BlowUp!

Flute octet BlowUp! was established by eight professional flautists in 2006. Its instrumental range is the equivalent of a string orchestra, from piccolo, flute, alto and bass flutes, down to the contra and sub-contrabass instruments which create rich sonority and a firm harmonic foundation. Each member plays several instruments of the flute-family and all perform as soloists and in a variety of orchestras and ensembles. The result is a group with remarkably diverse cultural and professional creative activities. These include composing, music-programming for the Dutch radio, festivals and concert series, visual arts, writing, teaching Indian music and professorships at Conservatoria and general flute teaching in music schools, educational projects and flute-repair/building. These influences can be found in various programmes performed in three yearly projects which embrace alternative surroundings like factories, galleries, churches and outdoors as well as conventional concert venues.

BlowUp! has built up a considerable repertoire of original works and arrangements, ranging from the Renaissance (Palestrina, de Victoria, Desprez), Baroque (Bach, Vivaldi,) Classical (Schubert), Romantic (Saint-Saëns, Elgar) Impressionist (Ravel, Debussy, Satie, Delius) and 20th century (Hindemith, Ligeti, Monnickendam, Barber, van Breen, Reich, Glass, Nyman, van Veen, McGowan, Clements).

The musicians of BlowUp! are: Egbert Jan Louwerse, Gaëlle DohenNoor KamerbeekDanielle KlootwijkFroukje WiebengaIvo Visser, Oliver Baker en Dominy Clements.
