Toonzetters (première)

Toonzetters is a kaleidoscopic concert experience during which twenty young Dutch composers sweep you away in their story. With a range of different styles and characters, from neo-romantic percussion to indie rock on piano or jazzy electronics, being showcased at high speed, painting a vivid portrait of today’s music for one exquisite hour. Throw in the energetic play of four excellent Dutch musicians, combined with the hypnotic images by Bowie Verschuuren under the direction of Jos van Kan, and the tone is set for a unique concert.

Composers Jan-Peter de Graaff, Celia Swart, Julian Schneemann, Bram Kortekaas, Mathilde Wantenaar, Primo Ish-Hurwitz, Ramin Amin Tafreshi, Frieda Gustavs, Nuno Lobo, Martín Mayo, Melle Heij, Alexandre Kordzaia, Thomas van Dun, Arjan Linker, Dimitri Geelhoed, Tijmen van Tol, Boris Bezemer, Rick van Veldhuizen, Nils Davidse and Karmit Fadael.
