Newsletter april: music in turbulent times
‘As the disease spread, the people turned to isolation and told each other stories.’
Who would have thought that after 650 years, this description of the Boccacio’s timeless masterpiece Decameron would sound so eerily familiar? That’s why in this month’s newsletter you’ll find some longer stories. Dive into African music, read more about a shared female interest of Mozart and Haydn, and join Evert-Jan Nagtegaal on his quest to find the Bonn Beethoven grew up in. And if you happen to stumble upon an old picture of Gerrit Isaac van Eijken lying around on the attic floor, we’d be very happy recipients!. For now, we’ve stocked up our studio with cleaning sprays, pop caps, wipes, soap and paper towels, so we can keep the broadcast going. All in the spirit of keeping you off the street as much as we can, especially now. See you next month!
