Nox, Latin for night. The night of Schumann’s Nachtstücke and Rob Zuidam’s Nox (which was co-commissioned by Oranjewoud Festival) is the artistic opening of the doors to the haunted castle to romantic poets and composers. In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, nocturnal visions became the foundation of a pre-Freudian unconscious. It is where major authors discover their dreams and fears. In this fantastical mirror world, they come face to face with themselves and the magic of imagination.*
Hannes Minnaar, one of the Netherlands’ most celebrated pianists, shares his nocturnal musings and feelings with the audience through music. He plays a straight-strung Maene grand piano, which compared to overstrung instruments, produces a more transparent sound, without compromising sensuality.
