Music from KVNM editions at five occasions during the Festival Week
19-24 November 2018
A variety of Dutch music from KVNM editions will come alive at five different programs and ensembles. Because our aim is to encourage broadly based participation in our festivities, we have engaged both amateur and professional student ensembles. In addition, by reconstructing the first ‘propaganda concert’ with KVNM editions, musicologists and students together bridge the gap between ‘scholarship’ and music, harking back to the first years of the Society.
Project Choir at the Jubilee Get-Together
19 November – Utrecht, Academiegebouw
A project choir with KVNM members, musicologists and student musicologists led by conductor and musicologist Dirkjan Horringa, will reconstruct parts of the very first concert with works from the KVNM publisher’s list. That concert was given on 15 April 1878 and was conducted by Daniël de Lange. The program included Psalms 65 and 134 by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, which today will again be performed, using the editions available at that time.
The Utrecht Kamerkoor, conducted by Wolfgang Lange, will present a sample of Dutch religious choral music. The works by Josquin Desprez and Sweelinck are performed from the KVNM-editions; the first part of the Missa Cathedralis by Herman Strategier is part of the ‘Stijlproeven van Nederlandse Muziek’ (Style samples of Dutch Music) published by the KVNM.
