Edition 45 / 14 Oct 2017

8 x 88 keys

This edition of the Dag in de Branding Festival revolves round the piano. Kate Moore uses no less than eight in her piece entitled Sensitive Spot. Cello8ctet Amsterdam celebrates Philip Glass’s 80th birthday with a programme featuring new arrangements, this time of his film music for Dracula and The Hours. They are accompanied on piano by Michael Riesman, who is also the soloist. Michael Riesman has been Philip Glass’s right hand since 1974 and he created these new arrangements.

We have personally invited the American composer and pianist Michael Hersch to the Netherlands to give a unique, one-off concert. He will perform his own interpretation of The Vanishing Pavilions, a gripping cycle for solo piano.

Ensemble Klang shed their own distinctive light on the piano and Roi Nachshon catches the imagination with ‘Percano’ (percussion and piano in one) and a mobile grand piano.

Last but not least, the Residentie Orkest will premiere a very special piece in the Schönbergzaal of the Royal Conservatoire. In 1948, Ton de Leeuw set his piano concerto to one side in order to further his musical education in Paris. He never resumed work on it. The score was rediscovered recently and was handed to the famous pianist Ralph van Raat. He was so wild about the piece that we simply had to put on the world premiere of this hitherto unheard work.
