Heroes and Trains - Chamber Music Concert

Nomi Leeuwerik3-4-2019

Last Sunday, 31 March, we had another chamber music concert! The audience could enjoy lovely music throughout the evening, varying from a string quartet to a full chamber choir. The concert was even more interesting than usual this time, because we got to hear several original compositions, by Krashnese! For example, a composition was performed by a string quartet, in which the story of a hero came to life. Another original piece (for chamber orchestra), originally written to give percussionists more interesting parts than usual in most pieces, also made a strong impression.

Another group of musicians performed two impressive graduation pieces, with a solo cellist. The fingers flew rapidly over the strings and brought beautiful sounds to life. One of these was a piece by Villa-Lobos, imitating a train on its journey, with astonishing similarity. Another one was composed by Gulda and crossed fluently between classical and rock genres.

Overall, it was a very nice evening. We are looking forward to the next chamber music concert, which will taken place on the 12th of May at 3pm, in the Lutherse Kerk in Delft. The day before, a masterclass will take place, at which the ensembles will be coached by professional chamber musicians. We're looking forward to this weekend full of music!
