Met Simone Lamsma naar Amerika
“Magical! It’s like you can take the audience along to a different place, where you’ll experience the music together”, states Simone Lamsma in an interview. The Frisian star violinist shone on the American stage when she accepted maestro Jaap van Zweden’s invitation to perform as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic. Her performances with the best orchestras and on the most important stages are praised by the international press.
Romance at its best
Tonight, she takes you all the way to America. The public does not, perhaps, know it yet, but it is one of her favourite pieces: Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto―yes, the very same who also composed the moving Adagio for Strings! After the intermission, Brahms’ glowing, romantic Third Symphony. The melancholy third movement inspired many pop artists and can be heard in numerous movies. And tonight, as a little cherry on top: a new work by the German composer Detlev Glanert, composed specially as an appetizer to Brahms.
Allegro furibondo (Nederlandse première)
