Higher Levels

You can be too successful for your own good. That’s what happened to the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, whose Pines of Rome overshadowed lots of other music. But nood need for panic: Evert Jan Nagtegaal will be helping you this month by playing pearls from Respighi’s vocal oeuvre in his programme Daar Sanck een lied. Roel Jansen reaches even greater heights, when his successful Space Exposure goes out on Sunday evening 19th May for the 100th time. In honour thereof Roel has put together a special episode with highlights of 100 times ambient, trance, breakbeat, hiphop and other subgenres within today’s music. He talks about that to Lucy Vermeij, who interviewed him for the Concertzender. Clara Schumann is our composer of the month and we’re on course with Beethoven. Lots of listening pleasure!
