Audiopleasures News and Amsterdam update, Cello Biennale, London Calling, Burlesque Festival, International Documentary Festival, Cinedance, Agenda

Good Evening, due to the recent clashes with the dearest Digital Millennium Copyright Act ive decided to chance Audiopleasures to one post per subject, i've seen a lot of my posts being sanctioned by blogger and Digital Millennium Copyright Act and with no idea what was the matter with the posts, so for now the big posts and the weekly newsletter are canceled.

Next couple of month are gonna be very exicting and with a a lot of motives for a visit to this kick ass city.

Amsterdam Cello Biennale!
"From 5 to 13 November the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ will once again be seething with Dutch and international soloists, ensembles and orchestras for nine eventful days.

The predominating theme of this Biennale is the international cello ensemble. The ‘Berliners’ will grace the Biennale with their presence, alongside ensembles from the USA, Belgium, Latvia, France, the Netherlands and even China. The Biennale will be one colossal cello feast. The programming will appeal to interested passers-by, seasoned music lovers and cello fanatics alike, as well as to children and young talent. The Mega Children’s Cello Orchestra will set as many eager hearts racing as the appearance of Die 12 Cellisten der Berliner Philharmoniker."

Add to this a range of non-competitive categories such as panoramas, retrospectives, carte blanches, doc-animation, youth-oriented (Kids & Docs), best docs of the year, Dutch works… it makes up a vast and extremely diverse programme."
