Dulfer & Witteveen
Dutch Classical Talent
An exciting combination: saxophone and basson. The duo looks for their own (musical) voice and explores the entire history of music while doing so. Deborah Witteveen and Thomas Dulfer capture the zeitgeist in which millennials have grown up. Their lives are determined by choice stress, pressure to perform and the issues of the day.
The audience joins them in thinking about these dilemmas and literally gets their own voice in the concert. The jury was also captivated by the unusual combination: 'With a tireless drive, these two musicians storm the stage. Two extremes that challenge each other, then complement each other. Their cheerful nature and swinging program is contagious.”
This concert is part of the series de Zondagklassiekers.
Dutch Classical Talent as a talent track, is a household name in the Dutch classical music world. Among the laureates of Dutch Classical Talent are many well-known names such as Tania Kross, Lavinia Meijer, Nora Fischer, Van Baerle Trio and the Berlage Saxophone Quartet. A jury of experts selects four top talents through auditions. These four young musicians develop in a coaching program and tour the twelve largest concert halls in the Netherlands to put their name on the map. Their programs are stimulating, topical, moving and spectacular. This year there's a varied mix, with a singer, a percussion duo, a pianist and a cellist. Here you can hear the top musicians of tomorrow.
