Lam Gods


This concert is part of the festival Listen to the Lamb!: Flanders Festival Ghent is bringing the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb to life like never before. From Opera Ballet Vlaanderen to the Vooruit Arts Centre, and from CirQ to Democrazy: twelve Ghent-based cultural institutions are asking a colourful group of musicians and artists to translate the twelve panels of Van Eyck’s world-famous masterpiece into music. The result is a diverse range of musical genres and line-ups, from classical music and jazz to electronics and world music, presented as both intimate ensembles and performances and installations. The twelve brand-new performances form a single coherent whole and are staged at the Bijloke site. Visitors can choose their own route between the twelve different acts, with performances spread across the whole site.

Eric Sleichim: artistic direction, arrangements, tubax and electronics

BL!NDMAN [sax]
Koen Maas: soprano saxophone
Pieter Pellens: alto saxophone
Piet Rebel: tenor saxophone
Sebastiaan Cooman: bariton saxophone

A stunning finale to the 63rd edition of Flanders Festival Ghent and a highlight of the Van Eyck year calendar.
