Noa's Choice

Carte blanche Noa Wildschut

The young (age 16) Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut is one of the greatest international talents performing throughout the world today and as a protégé of Anne-Sophie Mutter. She also has a special bond with the Oranjewoud Festival. She has been performing at the festival every year since 2012 so she saw the festival develop into what it is today. With her debut CD released in September 2017 and the documentary film A Family Quartet that premièred then as well, there’s reason enough for a carte blanche series during the special European Capital of Culture edition of the festival.

Noa has chosen to work with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Levy for her performance as a soloist, to work with dear musical friends Quirine Viersen, Vladimir Babeshko and Enrico Pace for a chamber music performance, and a unique collaboration with the writer Joke van Leeuwen whom she has admired from a very young age and with accordion duo TOEAC. In this way, Noa is showing three different sides to her musical talent.
