Sky Stormers

This concert is part of Hemelbestormers (Sky Stormers). At Hemelbestormers, we welcome the new generation of up-and-coming top musicians, each with a unique, fresh look at music. With groundbreaking plans, these musicians breathe new life into music, from ancient to contemporary, in their own way. The Hemelbestormers do not shy away from breaking new ground and presenting surprising concerts. These are the concerts where you can later say, I was there!

Jess Gillam and James Baillieu

Last season, she toured major European venues as a Rising Star; now, she will provide an evening during Klapstuk: saxophonist Jess Gillam can rightly be called a sensation. 'Not only one of England's most virtuoso instrumentalists but also a boisterous, inspiring personality,' wrote The Times. Gillam has pianist James Baillieu at her side, one of his generation's leading vocal and chamber music pianists and a professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Beef

Klapstuk is the evening to discover classical music. For an hour, you will hear short highlights from popular pieces, with explanations in between by a host and the musicians. No prior knowledge of music is necessary. Short pieces that mean a little taste of everything. Musical tapas. Klapstuk is served in the lovely and intimate Recital Hall of the Concertgebouw, so you sit on top of the musicians. And after the concert, you don't have to go home straight away. The bar is open, and you can request a song from our house pianist, and it doesn't necessarily have to be classical music!

Thanks to the supporters of the Hemelbestormers Fund and the FdBvK Tafjord Fund.
