On Saturday 8 April the acclaimed piano duo Sandra and Jeroen van Veen will give a unique concert in the Aa Church – unique because you can listen to it lying down. You can bring your own mat to lie on or you can just sit on a chair and enjoy the wonderful acoustics and serene atmosphere of the Aa Church. This evening Sandra and Jeroen will play the Canto Ostinato on two grand pianos.
Sandra en Jeroen van Veen
Sandra and Jeroen van Veen have been performing together for more than twenty years, either on one or on two grand pianos. Sandra Mol (1968) and Jeroen van Veen (1969) met in 1987 while improvising on the piano when they were both students at the conservatory in Utrecht. Their shared passion for music and performing has taken them to concert halls in America, Canada, Russia and many other countries. Their recording of the Canto Ostinato by Simeon ten Holt received excellent reviews and Ten Holt himself declared it the best recording ever made of his work.
Theaterkantoor.nl and the famous ligconcerten®
In collaboration with Theaterkantoor.nl Sandra and Jeroen present ‘lying down concerts’ (ligconcerten®) at the most unusual venues, including churches, museums and abandoned factories. “Each of the venues where we perform the Canto Ostinato has its own dynamics,” says Stephan Staal of Theaterkantoor.nl. "We look for special venues because they give the concert an added dimension. We have previously performed in the Fokker Terminal in The Hague and the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, but listening to the Canto Ostinato in a church like the Aa Church promises to be a completely different experience."
Admission: starting at € 28,-
The concert starts at 8.30 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m.
