Long live variation!

The programming for the ten afternoon concerts and the eleven evening concerts is complete. And of course it remains exciting what the masterclass participants will bring in repertoire. Within these 21 concerts, more than two hours are reserved for them, and they will also give the 24 regional concerts in their entirety. Two of the masterclass ensembles that have already registered will also perform works by Hans Kox.

The Orlando Festival 2019 offers participants and listeners a total of 20 hours of varied chamber music from 4 centuries. Thirty musicians from ten countries will perform works by 42 composers from 13 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Austria, France, England, Germany, Russia, America, Sweden, Norway and Italy).

From solo compositions (for piano, violin, harmonium, double bass, flute, organ), via duo, trio, quartet, quintet and sextet to the 15 musicians in the Gruppo Montebello, with the cooperation of the 20 singers of the Opera Zuid Theatre Choir. Big names from the baroque period (Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann), the classical period (Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert), the romantic period (Borodin, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Grieg, Chopin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns), the 20th century (Bartók, Schönberg, Webern, Berg, Shostakovich, Messiaen) are flanked by perhaps lesser known but no less interesting colleagues.

Special attention will be paid to the recently deceased Dutch composer Hans Kox (1930-2019), who is in the spotlight with 14 representative and varied works. Other Dutch composers to whom we pay attention are Gerrit Jan van Eijken (1832 – 1879), Otto Ketting (1935-2012), Patrick van Deurzen (born 1964) and Maria Alejandra Castro Espejo (born in Peru, 1978), who has lived in the Netherlands since she was six years old.
