Chinese composer Tan Dun won an Oscar for Best Soundtrack for the movie Hero. At present he is in high demand as a composer. Dun is always on the lookout for remarkable combinations, unusual instrumentations and a rhapsodie of styles. Artist in Residence Ella performs today together with the Percussion Friends ‘Snow in June’, based on a drama about a Chinese woman in the 13th century. This work for cello is seldom performed and the concert will be a true spectacle.
More adventure can be heard in Kodaly's duo for violin and cello, full of folk, passion, retorics and virtuosity. Ella will perform this work together with a young Irish violonist, Mairéad Hickey, whom she met during her study at the prestigious Kronberg Academy in Germany.
Q&A. Direct na afloop van het concert zal Ab Nieuwdorp, presentator van De Klassieken op NPO Radio 4 in gesprek gaan met Ella van Poucke. Als publiek krijg je ook de gelegenheid vragen te stellen.
