Easter means Bach. But in addition: in the Muziekgebouw aan het IJ there are three special concerts next week, including the St John Passion by Heinrich Schütz. In this newsletter we look forward to the forthcoming edition of the Early Music Festival , themed around Neapolitan musical life. Part 1 takes us back to the Middle Ages. And in a new series about 20th century operas we’re focussing on a hidden jewel from opera history.
Have you always wanted to know how the Concertzender works? Now’s your chance, because mid-May three listeners are welcome at the special 100th broadcast of Roel Janssen’s Space Exposure. Faithful followers of the Palace of Melancholy can enjoy the story of Peggy Lee. There is so much to hear(and read!) on the Concertzender. Enjoy! And Happy Easter.
