Tosca Opdam – violin

“Everyone waits for everyone on an unknown but familiar infinite chessboard.”
— Shuzo Takiguchi, uit zijn gedicht Yves Tanguy

“Everyone waits for everyone on an unknown but familiar infinite chessboard.”
— Shuzo Takiguchi, from his poem Yves Tanguy

A program shaped by friendships and discoveries of forgotten violin repertoire. Toru Takemitsu was inspired to write many of his compositions by the poetry of his friend Shuzo Takiguchi. Elgar dedicated his Violin Sonata in E minor to a close friend days before she died. Mendelssohn wrote his Violin Sonata in F major for a friend and colleague, while a violinist's hesitation led Janácek to revise his Violin Sonata for eight long years.

Violinist Tosca Opdam, together with pianist Alexander Ullman, brings music that is connected by befriended creative relationships, being dressed in a tailor-made gown by haute couture designer Paul Schulten. They will perform this program later in the season at New York's renowned Carnegie Hall. A unique opportunity to hear it in the Vriendenconcerten series first!
