Last concert June 25, 2017.

It is a tough battle to compete with the Holland Festival, but what to do when you have the most fantastic concerts in that same period? We think we’ll have them anyway. On June 25, the ToestdesTijds Concerts in HET VEEM offer you the DAVID KWEKSILBER MINI-FESTIVAL

At 11.00 o’clock in the morning David Kweksilber, our ‘Musician in residence 2017’ and the Emmèlle Quartet will play the Mozart and Brahms clarinet quintets, two of the highlights of the repertoire for that wind instrument, and at 15.00 hrs you’ll hear the world premiere of  ‘The Four Seasons’ for 2 different clarinets and 2 different saxophones and string quartet that Maud Sauer composed for David and the Emmèlle

David will open the afternoon concert with ‘Pan‘ for bass clarinet solo, that Gilius van Bergeijk wrote for him in 2001. The members of the Emmèlle Quartet (Merel Junge and Mariana Hutchinson, violin, Lotte de Vries, viola and Lidy Blijdorp, violoncello) present themselves seperately with pianist Pauline Post, a.o. in pieces from the American Songbook.

Together with Merel and Pauline, David will play ‘Contrasts’ by Bela Bartók, and finally all of the ensemble will perform Aaron Copland’s rarely played masterpiece: his sextet for clarinet, piano and string quartet, a reduction of his Short Symphony (1933)

To the lucky ones, the first 15 people to make a booking for both concerts, we can offer a package deal: both concerts plus a 3-course lunch at the famous restaurant BAK in the same building.
