I have just received this note from cellist Roel Dieltiens http://www.roeldieltiens.be, preeminent interpreter of Franchomme’s works and a name familiar to many readers of this blog. In addition to being a fabulous cellist, he is also professor of cello at the University of Arts in Zurich. If you are in Amsterdam, check it out!
There will be something interesting for Franchomme lovers during the CelloBiennale of Amsterdam which starts after tomorrow. My entire cello class of the University of Arts of Zürich will perform there in the lunchconcert of the 23rd some Etudes and Caprices for two cellos. There will be also two sonatas for two cellos on the program from another cellist-composer who was not bad at all either: Boccherini…
The lunchconcert is on the 23rd of October at 12.30h in the „Bimhuis” Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam. More information at www.cellobiennale.nl
