With this unique summer program, piccoloist Ilonka Kolthof and pianist Ralph van Raat set you in motion with music that is primarily from Dutch composers. The young composer Jan-Peter de Graaff wrote Meccanica, especially for this duo. This piece was inspired by the work of visual artist Theo Jansen; "Strandbeesten". Besides this the duo will play Gershwin’s uplifting I Got Rhytm, the way is cleared for a homage to three eventful composers by Allan Segall. Finally, a brand new piccolo sonata by Jan Vriend in which finger swiftness and musical acrobatics reign.
A special program with two absolute top musicians who are currently making a name for themselves both nationally and internationally in the special setting of the Hermitage, Amsterdam. A program that you do not want to miss because it is not possible every day to see these musicians in this setting.
