Marcel Worms
rondom Francis Poulenc
Pianist Marcel Worms will bring a wonderful program this afternoon: the French composer Francis Poulenc has a very personal and therefore recognizable style. This does not alter the fact that this style was partly shaped by music by other composers. For example, Poulenc has always admired his compatriot Emmanuel Chabrier, about whom he even wrote a biography.  Read more

Rembrandt Trio
The Rembrandt Trio is internationally known for their curious view and innovative collaborations that constantly give jazz a new direction. Their most recent album “A Wind Invisible Sweeps Us Through The World” is the result of fifteen years of making music together. “If you share the stage for so long, you are part of each other's development both as a musician and as a person”. There is such a strong bond of trust between Rembrandt, Tony and Vinsent that they feel completely free to follow their musical instincts and play whatever the music asks for at that moment.

The Matthews Baartmans Conspiracy
Iain Matthews & BJ Baartmans - Americana
During the pandemic, Iain and BJ started working together again resulting in a series of songs in which they gave free rein to their reflections on the corona crisis. Gloomy or comforting, disturbing or, on the contrary, resigned. Those songs were released in September 2021 on the album "Distant Chatter" and accompanying bonus EP Close Call. The collection of songs is described as "Americana with an adventurous, colorful and sometimes pleasantly gritty edge. Striking melodic twists, sharp choirs and playfully wriggling guitar lines. Highly personal reflections on an album that could not but be made, it went like naturally in all aspects".

That is why their program 'Cor-i-Fay' is the countless variety of music, text and enchantment.

Wolfert Brederode met het Matangi Quartet
Vorig jaar was het een eeuw geleden dat de Eerste Wereldoorlog werd beëindigd, een drama op een tot dan toe ongekende schaal dat diepe wonden heeft geslagen en de overgang markeert van het ‘oude’ naar het ’nieuwe’ Europa. Alhoewel dit continent nog nooit zo’n lange periode van vrede heeft gekend zien we in de eenentwintigste eeuw ook parallellen met die tijd. Geïnspireerd door dit gegeven componeerde Wolfert Brederode, een van de meest eclectische musici van Nederland, Ruins & Remains, een suite uit tien aaneengesloten delen van ongeveer 60 minuten voor piano, slagwerk en strijkkwartet. Muziek die over de innerlijke strijd van de mens gaat, tegenslagen overwinnen, littekens oplopen. Read more

Angelo Verploegen Trio
"When the Night Falls"
Angelo Verploegen's new album 'When Night Falls' is an ode to the night in all its forms; from dusk to dawn. With the chosen standards he tries to capture the course of the evening, while limiting himself in terms of instrumentation, repertoire and recording technique - in order to evoke that narrowed world of the night in all its facets. With Ed Verhoeff on guitar and Eric van der Westen on bass, Angelo Verploegen reunited a trio that carries with them more than twenty years of joint history. In subtle play in which a wealth of experience and attention resounds, we witness a twilight conversation between three old friends.

l'Armonia Sonora en Peter Kooij
'Der Friede sei mit Dir'
L'Armonia Sonora, consisting of toppers from the ranks of the Netherlands Bach Society, will present a fascinating baroque program this afternoon with one of the most prominent baroque singers, the bass Peter Kooij. The whole is led by the gambist Mieneke van der Velden.

The cantata 'Der Friede sei mit dir' (BWV 158) is one of the highlights of the work of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750); this solo cantata by Bach with an obbligato violin part and basso continuo seems simple in instrumentation, but it is a very complete cantata with arias, recitatives and a beautiful closing chorale.  Read more
