program

The concert unfolds from the beginning of the 20 '

century to date with the premiere of composer and DJ Cio D'Or.

The repertoire revolves around the composers of 'classical music' who have taken rhythmic popular music, such as jazz, into their music and how boundaries between genres are constantly mixed and broken down.

Schulhoff, Muczynski, Peterson, Yakushenko and Jongen are five composers who have created music with a special 'swinging' islet and added their own language and folklore.

Female artist Cio D'Or is a shining example of the modern way of creating such a tonal language.

 

An extraordinary program filled with the joy of playing in the hands of three star musicians who are all professors at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, the Netherlands.
