Conductor and pianist Maxim Emelyanychev
Maxim Emelyanychev, a specialist in 18th-century music and for years the celebrated leader of the authentic ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro, leads the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra in a program with music around Mozart and Haydn. He conducts the last symphony that Haydn composed. He also solos in Mozart's Twentieth Piano Concerto, one of the few with a minor key and, therefore, perhaps the most passionate of the 27 he wrote.
Jeanine De Bique sings Britten
The 'impeccable, warm voice' ( de Volkskrant ) of the South American singer Jeanine De Bique is exactly what Britten's delicate song cycle Les Illuminations needs. A beautiful combination of English modesty with Rimbaud's warm-blooded French lyrics.
