Off we go!

mon 11 mar 2019

In Amsterdam the 2019 edition of the Opera Forward Festival 2019 is still running. In Den Haag everything’s ready for Rewire 2019, from 29th to 31st March. And worldwide everything’s getting ready for Beethoven year 2020. The Concertzender’s fully involved.

Missed an Opera ? In ‘the people of the Concertzender’ this month an interview with Luc Nijs, who made the series ‘opera in the 20th century’ . All about modern opera, chronologically ordered with interesting diversions and explanations. The makers have currently reached 1973, but all episodes can be heard retrospectively on our website.

The Concertzender is focussing a lot this month on Rewire 2019. Curious about the groundbreaking music that will be played there? We’ve got all the programmes with music from the artists performing there sorted and will be presenting special editions of X-Rated, Electronic Frequencies, Space exposure and Contemporary. Go and explore!

There’s also a lot going on in the classical sector. This month we’re starting a new series called Finlandia, with Scandinavian music c. 1900. We’re broadcasting new recordings of Baroque repetoire  and the 100e episode of our series about Jordi Savall. And in Concertzender Today clarinetist Michele Mazzini is our guest on Wednesday afternoon. Not a moment to waste: enjoy!
