On March 23, 2011, de Doelen was the scene of an incredible project: 356 musicians took to the stage for the performance of Arnold Schönberg's Gurrelieder. The preparations and the final concert of this unique performance conducted by Reinbert de Leeuw was followed by Carine Bijlsma, resulting in the documentary Extase.
On February 14, 2021, it will be exactly one year since Reinbert de Leeuw passed away. As a great champion of Schönberg's music, performing the Gurrelieder for De Leeuw was a dream come true. This online broadcast is an ode to the composer and conductor.
The online stream will have two time slots. First the documentary Extase will be screened, followed by a Q&A with documentary filmmaker Carine Bijlsma and finally we will livestream the concert. Free to view from home!

‘This film captures the transcendent power of music through the journey of an impassioned conductor and instills in the viewer a belief in the necessity of art in all of our lives.'
