Agenda Archief
Wolfert Brederode, Joost Lijbaart & Matangi Quartet
'Ruins & Remains'
Last year it was a century since the end of the First World War, a drama on a hitherto unprecedented scale that has left deep wounds and marks the transition from the 'old' to the 'new' Europe. Although this continent has never known such a long period of peace, we also see parallels with that time in the twenty-first century. Inspired by this fact, Wolfert Brederode, one of the most eclectic musicians in the Netherlands, composed Ruins & Remains, a suite of ten continuous movements of approximately 60 minutes for piano, percussion and string quartet. Music that is about the inner struggle of man, overcoming adversity, incurring scars. 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.

Alexander van Popta Quartet
Alexander van Popta is a very talented pianist, composer and producer who has built up a very versatile career in a short time. He could already be heard twice in Porgy en Bess in the quartet of trumpeter Teus Nobel and then made a big impression. But now he has his own quartet consisting of Alexander van Popta (piano), Jelle Roozenburg (guitar), Jamie Peet (drums) and Thomas Pol (bass), a formidable line-up.

The upcoming album, 'All the memories that objects carry', follows soon after his debut with 'Methods To Madness', which is barely a year old. Because so many gigs were canceled during the pandemic, the focus has shifted even more to life in the studio. Read more

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

Festival de la Chanson Française, 2-ième édition
Ensemble Soite!

French chanson is booming: hundreds of thousands of Dutch people enjoyed the beautiful TV series Chansons! in 2021 by TV co-star Matthijs van Nieuwkerk and 'Snollebollekes foreman' Rob Kemps. Porgy responded to this trend with a daring and completely sold-out three-day chanson festival in April 2022. We are happy to build on this resounding success and are proud to present a second edition with surprising ensembles!

Festival de la Chanson Française, 2-ième édition
Talk To Me In French
Multi-talented Frank Mercelis, musician, singer and actor, has been on stage in many capacities for over 20 years. i.a. with his chanson collective Eddy et les Vedettes he made four successful theater tours, including 'Une Belle Histoire', in collaboration with the writer Bart Van Loo. Today he takes the sensuality and rhythm of the French language with him in the beautiful musical narration 'Talk To Me In French', accompanied by Antoon Offeciers on piano.

"Text and music flow wonderfully into each other, meandering and sparkling, perfectly clever without losing nature. With a great sense of humor too, verbally and musically." The Standard, four ****

“After many wanderings as a singer, musician and actor, Frank Mercelis comes home to a wonderful theater program. (...) The provisional culmination of a very versatile career.” - Het Nieuwsblad, four **** Read more

Carel Kraayenhof & Marietta Petkova
'De Hand van de Beer'
Carel Kraayenhof (bandoneon) verwierf landelijke bekendheid met zijn meesterlijke Adiós Nonino voor koningin Máxima. Marietta Petkova (piano) schitterde op grote Nederlandese podia én op ons podium met solo-recitals. Deze twee meesters op hun instrument hebben elkaar gevonden in een autobiografisch getint programma, getiteld 'De Hand van de Beer'. Vanuit bewondering voor elkaars kunstenaarschap en een onmiskenbare klik ontstond het idee voor een gezamenlijke tournee. Met volksmuziek als onderliggend thema vertolken zij werken van o.a.. Bach, Schubert, Albéniz en Argentijnse meesters als Piazzolla, Garçia en Soria. Read more
