Simeon ten Holt. “Canto Ostinato” for four pianos
The famous piece by Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt is the focus of the programme.This meditative piece by the Dutchman follows the traditions of Terry Riley and other minimalists. It has been performed at the majority of renowned concert halls and music festivals in Europe and America.
Alexei Lubimov, the figurehead of new and early music traditions in Russia, has prepared and will be leading the programme of the concert. Jeroen van Veen, another pianist leading concert programmes, is a close follower of the way of thinking of ten Holt and upholds the traditions of his music in the Netherlands.
The four pianos will be placed on the floor of the concert hall; the audience will be seated around the performers and on balconies to be able to hear the orchestral timbre of the pianos as well as possible and to visually enjoy the arising synergy.
