Panorama de Leeuw
A new episode of Panorama de Leeuw is broadcast on Wednesday 5 September 21:00 CET, Panorama de Leeuw XLVI: Reinbert de Leeuw is 80!
Thea Derks is following the musical path left by Reinbert de Leeuw using her biography as her guide.
Reinbert de Leeuw celebrates his 80th birthday on Saturday 8 September. This milestone will be celebrated with an extensive tribute in the Muziekgebouw aan het IJ in Amsterdam. De Leeuw was asked what he would most like to hear during the evening and replied “Surprise me!” The programme for the evening has therefore not been published, but one thing is certain, the soprano Barbara Hannigan is taking part. Shortly, the CD ‘Vienna: Fin de Sciècle’ will be issued in which she sings songs written by Arnold Schönberg, Alma Mahler and others, accompanied by De Leeuw.
