Gilu ...

Alle in uns aufgespeicherten Energien verausgaben wir in diesem Jauchzen, Singen, Stampfen – [...]

Für uns ist es das Symbol unseres Lebens,

unserer Wünsche: »Freiheit auf allen Gebieten!« 

 

Gilu …

We spend all the energies stored up in us in this cheering, singing, stamping 

- [...].

For us it is the symbol of our life,

of our wishes: "Freedom in all domains!"

 

Gilu is a poem by

Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger. She describes the dance Gilu. This Hebrew word means: be happy, rejoice!

Gilu Trio (c) Anna Tena-12.jpg

Soprano, violin and harp: that's Gilu.

Maria Portela Larisch, Veronique De Raedemaeker and Mathilde Wauters found each other in a shared love for chamber music and fascination for poetry and started playing together, embracing their unusual instrumental setting. This has brought the trio to write their own arrangements of works close to their hearts and tailor them to a perfect fit for Gilu’s instrumentation. 

Gilu, a young ensemble founded in 2021, aims to stay connected to today’s society and its dilemmas. The sung poetry enables them to bring their message closer to the audience, and while having a special interest for 20th century - and contemporary music, they also perform music of other eras. Inviting different art forms to their unique combination of sound colours, they like to stretch the boundaries of the classical concert format. Each of the three young women received the highest distinctions in their field and have also won prizes in national and international competitions. Originally based in Belgium, they have studied in Belgium, France and Germany. The soprano’s Portuguese origins makes Gilu a real European trio that enjoys being on the road working everywhere in between these places.
