Tue 06 Jun Amsterdam, Musicstudio Marcel Worms 8:00 AM Second of four studioconcerts with explication: 'The Seasons' (Gadalaika) by Peteris Vasks
Peteris Vasks (*1946) is Latvia's most famous living composer. You could compare him to a certain degree with his Estonian colleague Arvo Pärt. However his spirituality is rooted not into religion but into nature. In his cycle 'The Seasons' (1980 - 2008) Vasks not only depicts Baltic nature during the different seasons (a silent, long and severe winter; an explosive springtime ; a short and joyfull, exuberant summer; a fall that becomes more stormy all the time) but he also expresses his concert about the, in his view, disturbed relation between man and nature
Content of the evening: life and music of Peteris Vasks - structure and meaning of the different parts of 'The Seasons' - my coöperation with Peteris Vasks in Riga (2015) and our visit to his hometown Aizpute (2016) - performance of the complete 'Seasons''

Música Callada - my lessons in Barcelona with his widow Carmen Bravo and Alicia de Larrocha, who knew Mompou and his music from so nearby - performance of the complete Música Callada.

Mon 19 Jun Amsterdam, Musicstudio Marcel Worms 8:00 AM Last one of four studioconcerts with explication: Caribbean classical pianomusic - Chopin in the tropics.
It's amazing that so many people don't know the classical music of the Caribbean. Even in the Netherlands only few people know the classical music of Curaçao, until recently a Dutch colony. This music is very accesible and dancing and convinces most listeners right away. There is of course the influence of Latin-American and African rhythmsbut also the influence of the music of Frédéric Chopin is clearly audible.
Content of the evening: the influences of Chopin and of Latin-American and African rhythms - life and music of a number of composers from Curaçao (in particular of the members of the Palm-dynasty) and from Cuba, Venezuela and Brazil - performance of a Caribbean
program with music by Jan-Gerard Palm, Jacobo Palm, Edgar Palm, Albert Palm and Wim Statius-Muller (all of them from Curaçao) and of Padu Lampe (Aruba), Ignacio Cervantes (Cuba), Teresa Careño (Venezuela) and Francisco Mignone (Brazil)
