Toonzetters with De Graaff, Kortekaas, Swart, Veldhuizen and more

Toonzetters is a kaleidoscopic concert in which twenty young Dutch composers take you into their story. Different styles and characters, from neo-romantic percussion to indie rock on piano or jazzy electronics, are reviewed at a rapid pace. During an hour, a lively image of the time of music in the present day unfolds. Add to this the energetic playing of four excellent Dutch musicians, combined with the hypnotic film images by Bowie Verschuuren and the direction by Jos van Kan, and the tone for a unique concert seems to be set.

Works by Jan-Peter de Graaff, Mathilde Wantenaar, Karmit Fadael, Julian Schneemann, Celia Swart, Kordz, Bram Kortekaas, Rick van Veldhuizen, Boris Bezemer, Frieda Gustavs, Nils Davidse, Thomas van Dun, Primo Ish-Hurwitz, Nuno Lobo, Ramin Amin Tafreshi, Arjan Linker, Tijmen van Tol, Martín Mayo, Melle Heij and Doukus.

Rudolf Escher: Sonate for cello solo


However much the composers Escher and Brahms differ, they have in common that they were extremely critical of their own work. For example, Escher withdrew many of his works, even if they had already been published, because on closer inspection they did not meet his standards.
