Editorial: Miles in May

In May, we are launching a retrospective on Miles Davis. All aspects of this legendary trumpet player, bandleader and composer will be covered in six legendary concerts. Jaap van der Klomp compiled the series especially for Concertzender, and Ben Zwanink wrote the introduction. A summer full of Miles! Our composer of the month, Aaron Copland, will bring you more Americana, Thou Singest Ye Carol will focus on Francis Poulenc’s repertoire, and in An Ox on the Roof by Thea Derks, you will hear songs to poems by Anna Akhmatova. Finally, as the icing on the cake, you can win a 3 CD-box by jazz pianist Bart Flos. The Night: Jazz will feature his music no less than 7 hours on 4 May.
