Agenda Archief
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".

Wolfert Brederode met het Matangi Quartet
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.

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

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

Festival de la Chanson Française, 2-ième édition
double concert!
Op de laatste dag van dit festival laten we ons publiek genieten van twee optredens. De middag begint met de fantastische Franse chansonnier Philippe Elan met zijn vaste begeleider op gitaar en piano Reyer Zwart. Zoals we van Edison winnaar Elan gewend zijn wordt iedere chanson vertolkt met de zorgvuldigheid en passie die het verdient. De liederen worden afgewisseld met jeugdherinneringen en anekdotes die voor Philippe verbonden zijn met vrijwel elk chanson; over de liefde uiteraard, maar ook over literatuur, de maatschappij, film en kunst. Als onderdeel van Philippe's muzikale levensverhaal zal ongetwijfeld de wereldhit 'Adieu monsieur le professeur' vanmiddag niet ontbreken....

We besluiten dit festival met een spetterend optreden van Marjolaine et les Manouches. Marjolijn Polfliet brengt met haar Manouches Franse chansons van toen, van nu en van alle dagen daartussen. In een altijd herkenbaar maar soms toch eigengereid nieuw jasje. Chansons om mee te zingen, chansons die iedereen herkent, chansons om beter te leren kennen, chansons om over je heen te laten komen. Met altijd een beetje achtergrondinformatie over de inhoud van de liedjes en de artiest daarachter. Zo wordt het voor 'les Non-Francophones' ook interessant. Vorig jaar opende Marjolaine en haar ensemble het eerste chanson festival op overtuigende wijze. Wij verwachten nu een spectaculaire slotact!
