TEST 7 June
Composition student Jeromos Kamphuis felt compelled to mark the 200th birthday of composer Robert Schumann in a special way. This German romantic composer, who was born on 8 June 1810 in the German village of Endenich, spent his life writing many famous works for the piano. He also devoted time to composing songs, chamber music and a number of symphonies.
Het Nutshuis is always up for a party and so on 7 June during TEST, pianist Kornilios Selamsis and tenor Niels Berentsen will accompany Jeromos in an ode to Schumann. Their performance will include a recently-discovered piece composed by Schumann for the piano entitled Ahnung, which is thought to have been part of Kinderszenen (Dutch première). And Jeromos will also pay his own latter-day tribute to Schumann with 3?
So we're throwing a real party, complete with bunting, cake and lemonade. Hope to see you there!
