Those of you who attended the concert in BIJ ANDREAS last year on November 30th, will certainly remember who Nicolas van Poucke is. That night, this young pianist played a fascinating recital to celebrate the St. Andreas name day. This year he returns, and to add a little extra to our festivities, we have also invited his friend and colleague Thomas Beijer.
Thomas and Nicolas rank at the top of a new generation of young pianists in the Netherlands. Both have won many awards and played solo as well as with an orchestra on major stages, nationally and internationally. Nicolas is a passionate musician who is perfectly in tune with the music and plays dynamically and with emotion. Conductor Jaap van Zweden once called him an extreme talent. Thomas is equally passionate and a multitalented and very interesting musician. He does not only play, he also composes and arranges music.
It’s shaping up to be a beautiful evening! We therefore hope many of you will come to listen to this remarkable double concert.
