From Sweelinck to Sonneveld is a musical tribute to the city of Amsterdam and its inhabitants. Together with baritone Thomas Oliemans and accordionist/pianist Bert van den Brink, four singers of the Nederlands Kamerkoor will make a musical journey through five centuries of music in Amsterdam. Through the uncovering of music from the city’s nooks and crannies, they discover more about the musical history of the city where everything goes. From a chanson by Jacques Brel and a chanson by Sweelinck to age-old songs from Amsterdam synagogues – this programme is as varied as the city itself.
Thomas Oliemans bariton, piano
