Romance and Minimalism
Carolien Fleumer uses two words to describe her piano programme: Romantic Minimalism. The deep red romance of Chopin and the sparkling pale pink of Silvestrov next to the almost hypnotic fragments so characteristic of the music of Glass and Tiersen.
Chopin and Silvestrov may not be contemporaries and their countries of origin are political worlds apart, yet they meet in the red shades of their shared Eastern European soul. Carolien Fleumer's experiment of connecting the genres and making almost seamless transitions between the warm red of the Romantics and the blue coolness of the Minimalistst and vice versa, has resulted in some surprising effects.
This Sunday matinee concert will start at 11.30 a.m. with a 45 minute listening concert followed by an intermission. Then the same musician will return for another 45 minutes but during this concert you can listen and talk and enjoy a delicious lunch! For these matinee concerts we will have a special lunch on offer.
Sun 20 Jan 2019: Coert Huijsman
Lunch arrangement: €27,50 (two course lunch incl. glass of wine)
