Simeon ten Holt's Canto Ostinato
Jeroen van Veen performs Simeon ten Holt's most famous composition with three other pianists: Canto ostinato. The Concertgebouw is ideal for this: 'In this hall you have 100% control over the sound' says Van Veen.
Canto ostinato on four pianos
'Canto is a way of life for me', pianist Jeroen van Veen once said in an interview. As a teenager he became acquainted with Simeon ten Holt's most famous composition, which can last half an hour, but also six hours. Van Veen remarked the following about Canto ostinato in The Concertgebouw: 'You want to be able to play Canto as a whisper, even with four pianos at the same time. In this room you have 100 percent control over the sound. And what is also very nice: it feels like the audience is very close.'
