Soprano Marjon Strik in Café Zimmermann

tue 6 oct 2015
Theme: Early Music

Our guest in Café Zimmermann on Friday 16 October from 13:00 to 14:00 CET is the soprano Marjon Strijk!


Café Zimmermann is part of our series Bach ad Infinitum.


The Dutch soprano Marjon Strijk performs Bachcantate BWV 84 "Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Glücke" and arias from the cantatas BWV 32 en 127 from Bach. She is accompanied by cellist Frank Wakelkamp and organist Henk van Zonneveld, who also performs two of Bach's works for the organ.

Govert Jan Bach, producer of Bach ad Infinitum, also talks to Marjon about what makes the solo cantata BWV 84 so special for a soprano.

She has sung a lot of Bach in her career: she can be heard on CD box-sets with the complete series of sacred cantatas, has recorded CDs with the St. John and St. Matthew Passions and is a member of the soloist ensemble of the Nederlandse Bachvereniging led by Jos van Veldhoven.

Marjon Strijk also performs cantata nr. 84 live with the Margaretha Consort in Assen, Deventer and Den Dolder on 16, 17 and 18 October.
