Chief-conductor Peter Dijkstra compiled a masterly programme with a timeless theme: the wandering soul, drifting between heaven and earth. Do we listen to god’s command, or do we give in to earthly temptations?

Benjamin Britten must have struggled with this question. It can be heard in one of his most beautiful choral works: Sacred and Profane, written to medieval texts. The lure of the temporary sounds comical but heartbreaking in Berio’s Cries of London, about street vendors in 16th century. The works of the Swedish Lars Johan Werle complete the programme, Peter Dijkstra became familiar with the composer whilst he was chief-conductor of the Swedish Radio Choir. A ‘classic’ choral programme with a timeless touch.

Tido Visser, managing director of the Nederlands Kamerkoor, watched his father – the famous opera singer Lieuwe Visser – sink further and further into Lewy body dementia. A form of dementia that gives rise not only to forgetfulness, but also hallucinations, illusions and suspicion. […]
