Editorial: Erring through October

sat 28 sep 2019

You’ve seen it coming for the last 4 weeks: the ‘r’ is in the month (let’s leave out september). And in the Concertzender, as a matter of fact. The R of rest and reflection. Or it the area of relaxation between the Early Music festival/Gaudeamus and November Music/Le Guess Who? So, a relaxed newsletter, but with news about the Organs of Arp Schnitger, and devils falling in love. And about Oliver Knussen, our ravishing composer of the month.

This summer we asked you to tell us what you thought of us. We had some nice responses and your committment to and appreciation of the Concertzender warmed our hearts and gave us a supportive feeling. We’re rewarding one respondent from the Walloon (!) with the standard work about Russian music by Arthur Olof. For everyone else: there’s another CD to be won this month.

The Concertzender consists of support and donations and from charity work and especially from old paper. We have piles of it, programme forms in which makers, coordinators, technicians and presenters make daily adjustments until you hear the results, live via the radio or whenever you want via our app or website. See you next month!
