'Sometimes a few words can mean a lot' is the starting point of the richly varied Vox by the instrumental duo Rozemond & Bekkers. In the vocalise, also called vox, the pure sound coming from one or two vowels plays a central role: agile and associative communication. Furthermore, the meaning of words is also of strong importance in this inspiring programme with a partly Jewish background.
With a collage of compositions by Rachmaninov, Händel, De Falla, Fischer, Podgaits and Gubaidulina, Jacobien Rozemond and Renée Bekkers do not only guarantee a perfect balance between classical and innovation, but also a titillating journey of discovery through the possibilities of their instruments.
This concert is part of De Zondagklassiekers (the Sunday Classics) series.
‘The warm violin tones and clear dynamic voice of Jacobien Rozemond; Renée Bekkers' solid and brilliant play on the multicoloured accordion: they compel you, move you, make you smile...'
