Opening concert of the Spring Cycle of Festival der Voorkempen
Unclassic classical is a good description for Urban Renaissance. Boho Strings delves into the urban fabric and looks for traces of anyone who has ever lived there. We also seek relaxation and escape together in the idyllic (utopian?) countryside.
None other than Tamar Halperin included as a soloist in the Urban Renaissance program
Tamar Halperin studied the piano and harpsichord in Tel Aviv, Basel, and New York. In 2009 she obtained a PhD at the Juilliard School, with a dissertation on Bach. She has recorded for labels such as Decca, Neos, Neue Meister and Act (including with Wunderkammer, the album with jazz pianist Michael Wollny that won two Echo awards). During her youth, she trained to become a professional tennis player. Now she lives with her husband in a small German village. Tamar won the Hessischer Kulturpreis 2016.
On the program works by Bach, McCarthy, Pärt, Vivaldi, Glass, Frankel, and Gorecki
