Forgotten gems from 70 years of the Holland Festival

Orphanage of the Holland Festival

You are looking at a performance from our archive

In the last 70 years many new pieces by Dutch composers have been performed at the Holland Festival. Some of these compo­sitions have been unjustly neglected since and rarely performed again. In this special festival edition a series of the festival’s forgotten gems are being performed at Splendor, as part of their regular series of contemporary chamber music. On three ­evenings, pieces by Maarten Bon, Willem Breuker, Misha Mengelberg, Jan van Vlijmen, and no less than three Andriessens are being given a much needed second performance. Each composition is being performed twice, with a short talk show in between – after which you can discover the music in all its richness.
