The Dutch composer Merlijn Twaalfhoven has been commissioned by the Holland Festival to write a piece for over 100 bassoonists of all abilities, from beginners to Bram van Sambeek, one of the Netherlands’ great bassoonists. His composition will be able to accommodate bassoon players of every level, and it will be the crowning event of the Holland Festival’s contribution to the Save the Bassoon campaign. Children, as well as adults, are more than welcome to play in the concert or come as audience members. In combination with Twaalfhoven’s score, the Netherlands’ leading bassoon virtuoso Bram van Sambeek will perform Mozart’s famous bassoon concerto.
