This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Grachtenfestival and we celebrate this anniversary by looking back and looking forward. This afternoon we do so by presenting three generations of pianists, all closely connected to the festival. Under the experienced wings of Lestari Scholtes (37) Yang Yang Cai (23) and finally teenager Radu Ratering (17). Presented by Ab Nieuwdorp.
We will hear the three pianists solo, quatre-mains and even six-mains: with the three of them playing two pieces by Sergei Rachmaninoff behind one grand piano. The concert unfolds like a photo album, in which we see on the screen how the still very young Lestari played 25 years ago at our first-ever Grachtenfestival. Yang Yang and Radu are not new faces either so they will also bring back memories in conversation with Ab. The concert includes works by Schuman, Liszt, Chopin, Ravel and Debussy.
