Acoustic Roots

In this December episode of Acoustic Roots, we take a pass and look back at the past year.

Carolien Cleiren and Karin van den Boogaert


An eventful year. We caught the tail end of the Covid epidemic; Russia brutally invaded Ukraine, and we once again had to look around for a new recording location, which we found in Rotterdam, in the Batavierhuis. We made episodes with Mariana Sadovska, the Belgian formation Misst, Duygu Alkan came along and was accompanied by the Eudora Quartet. At the Batavier House, we hosted Alexandra Alden, Nina M. Rose, again the Eudora Quartet, who performed work by composer, musician and Batavier, among others: Yanna Pelser and Carol Ruiz played the piano, and we concluded the series of instalments last November with Le Cantastorie: Italian musicians Bibi Milanese and Valentina Pennisi.

And now time to warm ourselves around the musical Christmas tree, so to speak, to all the beautiful memories and all this wonderful music.
