Intimate Letters 5th March at 1700
Our monthly programme about current Dutch composers is taking a new direction from today. The composer who is the centre of attention and has jointly put the programme together, will focus on a colleague who he is fond of and to whom he will pass on the next programme. Hence the subtitle: Intimate Letters, after the string quartet by Leos Janacék.
In this first episode composer Joost Kleppe focusses on colleague Aspasia Nasopoulou.
Joost Kleppe (Amsterdam, 1963) studied composition with Tristan Keuris (1946-1996) at the Utrecht conservatorium. In 1990 he finished his study with the Composition Prize, for which his song cycle Winter received special mention. Since then he has received a number of international scholarships. He continued his studies in Hungary (Pépinieres pour Jeunes Artistes 1993), England (International Course for Professional Choreographers and Composers 1996) and Germany (Künstlerhäuser Worpswede 1994 and 2000).
