Summer 2014

Summer 2014 Two musicians whom I greatly admire, violinist Rosanne Philippens and cellist Mascha van Nieuwkerk, presented on Dutch Classical Radio4 this summer pieces of mine that I wrote especially for them.

For cellist Mascha van Nieuwkerk I wrote the Two Lyrical Dances for cello and piano. With Yuri van Nieuwkerk she [premiered them in Amsterdam](/en/news/128/) and played this live-recording in the Frits Philips Music Centre in Eindhoven.

Young violin star Rosanne Philippens won the First Price in the International Violin Competition Freiburg. For the second round I wrote for her (and with her kind advice) a beautifully lyrical Zarabanda for violin solo.
