Netherlands Radio Choir and Daniel Rowland

A special collaboration: the Groot Omroepkoor with star pianist Nino Gvetadze and violinist Daniel Rowland. Rowland accompanies the Groot Omroepkoor in a new piece by Roxanna Panufnik. This British composer is internationally acclaimed for her poetic choral works. Her music is deeply saturated with colour', wrote The Times.



Nino Gvetadze

Homage to the Georgian-Dutch pianist Nino Gvetadze', wrote the Volkskrant. On her album Visions she picks up the fascinating work of Cyril Scott 'from under the dust'. The British Scott, also a writer and philosopher, was admired by Debussy and Stravinsky, among others. His atmospheric, meditative piano music was ahead of its time. Gvetadze discovered Scott's works in her student days and has always remained in love with them. Today, she will be playing Water-Wagtail and some Poems, among other works.



Elgar, Walton and Mendelssohn
There is sweet music, which falls on the grass softer than rose petals', is how Elgar's There is Sweet Music begins . Not easy to sing, but wonderful to hear. The Groot Omroepkoor also sings works by Elgar's fellow countryman Walton. Organist Leo van Doeselaar will accompany the moving The Twelve, on a liturgical text by Auden. This concert starts with two of Mendelssohn's beloved Three Psalms, vocal works with great narrative power.
