A meditation on contemporary music.
Wim Geertsema: A wise teacher, a friend who seldom spoke, but always listened, and saw. To be heard and seen by his great heart really was something! On August 5th that heart stopped beating. Now he cannot speak anymore, and they say he cannot listen anymore either. But hey, let’s keep asking our questions anyway. We will be heard. And seen.
Farewell Wim! This one’s for you.
Two religious works from the brilliant CD box ‘Sacred Music’ of Harmonia Mundi and a track from the CD ‘Zero’ by Jeroen Elfferich. A very special performance of ‘The lady is a tramp’ by Sidsel Endresen and Bugge Wesseltoft and a lot of music by former guests of Kairos. All these fine things are wrapped in pretty gift-wrapping: two tracks from the album ‘Another Place’ by Maggie Brown.
