Winteravonden aan de Amstel - Cannons and muses
A new edition of the festival! In December you are welcome again at Winteravonden aan de Amstel, the chamber music festival that illuminates the darkness of the December evenings with compositions by masters from the classical music world. Winteravonden brings top musicians together in the atmospheric setting of H'ART Museum and other beautiful locations in Amsterdam.
The connecting power of music
'Cannons and muses' is the theme of this 11th edition of Winteravonden aan de Amstel. This makes the connection with the exhibition about Julius Caesar, which can be seen during the festival in the home base of the festival: H'ART Museum. The theme also ties in with the Russian invasion of Ukraine and what this does to musicians. In this way, a connection is made between the time of Caesar, the dictator who brutally subjected much of Europe to his authority, and the devastating war in Ukraine.
This year there is a program with virtuoso musicians from the three warring countries, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. The connecting power of music speaks for both the musicians and the audience. New works by composers from Ukraine and Russia are given a place on the program alongside well-known masterpieces from the European music library that provide comfort, connection and hope.
You can expect performances from, among others:
Alexei Volodin, Alexander Melnikov, Olga Pashchenko, Alexei Kurbatov, Tobias Borsboom, Victoriia Vitrenko, Anna Dudina, Anna Azernikova, Nathalia Milstein, Maria Milstein, Mathieu van Bellen, Alexander Rudin, Maya Fridman, Lidy Blijdorp, Dudok Quartet, Amstel Saxophone Quartet, Konstantin Napolov, narrator Frank Groothof, Musicians Concertgebouw Orchestra, Lecture/debate: Sjeng Scheijen, Maxim Osipov, Jan Brokken.
