About the event

A perfect balance between folklore, classical music and innovation.

On the CD VOX Duo Rozemond & Bekkers combines new music for violin/voice and accordion with compositions by the great masters of 100 years ago: Rachmaninov, Stravinsky, Ravel and Satie. The new compositions are by the Dutch composers Willem Jeths, Gerard Beljon and the Jewish composers René Samson (Netherlands), Iván Fischer (Hungary) and Efrem Podgaits (Russia) and the Basque composer Gorka Hermosa.

The duo has selected and written beautiful music, often inspired by songs, and has put together a collage of works in which all possibilities of the instrumentation are explored. For example, the accordion can sometimes evoke a deep sense of serenity with the violin as an organ sound, which can be heard in the Ave Maria by Podgaist and in the chorales from Ritratto by Willem Jeths, in great contrast to the nostalgic romanticism of Rachmaninov, the folk music in the tangos and the Jewish songs. By occasionally adding vocals and reciting texts, Jacobien Rozemond and Renée Bekkers enrich the coloring and expressiveness of their program.
