supporting programme (19.45): Vocaal Ensemble Kwarts
The Symphony of Psalms of Stravinsky is without a doubt one of the most important compositions of the 20th century. The Nederlands Kamerkoor performs the unique version for choir and piano four-hands, a revision by Sjostakovitsj.
The piece will be accompanied by works of Lili Boulanger, who died exactly hundred year ago because of Crohn’s disease. Works of Francis Poulenc and the Dutch composers Rudolf Escher and Ton de Leeuw complete the programme. Pianist Ralph van Raat debutes with the Nederlands Kamerkoor and invited Bobby Mitchel to join him.
