Jan Terlouw: our fragile freedom
During this Remembrance Day concert, writer and ex-politician Jan Terlouw contemplates on how fragile our freedom is. His plea is followed by music in which the most fragile, but meanwhile also most powerfull instrument is used: the human voice. Cappella Amsterdam, the Nationaal Vrouwen Jeugdkoor and singer Nora Fischer bring a programme with works from Des Prez, Poulenc, Ravel and De Leeuw. With two parts from Rossini’s optimistic Petite messe solennelle. Special guest in this Remembrance Day concert is young flute player Lucie Horsch. The concert is conducted by Ed Spanjaard and Wilma ten Wolde.
