As a source of inspiration for their intimist musical production Secrets, the soprano Claron McFadden and the Massot-Florizoone-Horbaczewski jazz trio chose… secrets. They gathered anonymous stories from the general public and took inspiration from the widely-varying character of the more than a hundred tales that were sent in. The result is a musical and visual mosaic in which Claron McFadden, singing, whispering and laughing, merges sorrowful, mischievous and cynical passages into one another. Each individual secret has a universal dimension. Secrets shows in a poetic manner that these hidden thoughts link us all together. Claron McFadden and the trio give each secret its own rhythm and musicality: melancholy, restrained, heart-rending or playful. This trio has for years been exploring the boundaries between chamber music, jazz and melancholically-tinged tapestries of sound, eschewing neither experiment nor improvisation. In their collaboration with Claron McFadden, their delight in playing creates sparks on stage.
Produced by Muziektheater Transparant and Aventura Musica, co-produced by JazzLab Series and Opera Days Rotterdam.
