JAN BROKKEN, writer and tonight’s speaker – GUSTAVO CORRALES ROMERO, well known pianist from CUBA.

A lecture, similar to the performance that we organised 10 years ago. Central theme: Brokken’s then recently published book Why 11 Antilleans kneeled before the heart of Chopin, which describes the rich piano tradition on the island of Curaçao and the Caribbean, linked with Chopin and the African roots of rhythm & dance.

Gustavo Corrales Romero will play classical & modern compositions of Caribbean composers, as described in this most prominent book about that topic.

concert starts: 15.00 pm. entrance fee: € 17,50 / € 12,50 (reduction: 65+, “stadspas” , student, CJP, our “kortingsbon” flyer ToetsDesTijds).
