Every year on December 5, Tomoko Mukaiyama presents a musical alternative for the Dutch traditional ‘Sinterklaasavond’. It is a gathering of friends, family, music and art lovers at the Amstelkerk, as an alternative for the tradition of sharing and unwrapping gifts at home.

This year, together with Maya Fridman, talented Russian cellist, Tomoko will perform the Epilogue of Alfred Schnittke’s Peer Gynt for cello & piano.

Franz Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata is an intimate and virtuoso work from The Romantic era, and will be performed by Tomoko and Maya in a version for cello and piano.
