Amarins Wierdsma, Reinier Bavinck & VUSO

Programma en toelichting: 

Vrijdagavond 10 mei 2019 speelt het Verenigd Utrechts Symfonie Orkest (VUSO) o.l.v. Reinier Bavinck het concert Shakespeare in de muziek in de Wilhelminakerk te Utrecht, met solist Amarins Wierdsma op viool.

 

In Shakespeare in de muziek neemt het VUSO je mee in de muzikale wereld die geïnspireerd is door de toneelstukken van de Engelse Bard. Het concert opent met de dramatische Overture uit de opera Roméo et Juliette van de Franse componist Gounod over de welbekende geliefden en hun vechtende families. Vervolgens speelt Amarins Wierdsma als solist de hoofdrol in de Fantasie Othello van Ernst. De componist, zelf ook violist én altviolist, schreef deze variaties gebaseerd op thema’s uit de opera Othello van de Italiaan Rossini. Daarnaast zal Amarins de solo in Légende van Wieniawski, een tijdgenoot van Ernst, voor haar rekening nemen. Wieniawski schreef dit stuk om de ouders van zijn verloofde Isabella van hun voorgenomen huwelijk te overtuigen, waarna ze in 1860 zijn getrouwd.

 

Na de pauze zal het VUSO enkele delen uit het stormachtige The Tempest van Sullivan spelen. De Engelse componist was pas 18 jaar oud toen hij dit stuk schreef als afstudeerproject aan het conservatorium. Het concert wordt afgesloten met vier delen muziek uit de musical West Side Story van Bernstein: I Feel Pretty, Somewhere, America en Tonight. Hiermee is de cirkel weer rond: de musical, die speelt in het Amerika van de jaren ’50, is een bewerking van Shakespeare’s Romeo en Julia.

  • Google Calendar ICS

Instrumenten gaan van bespeler naar bespeler en de redenen daarvoor kunnen heel verschillend zijn. Bij het NMF zien we dit veelvuldig: een viool wordt teruggebracht, de liefde voor een cello is over, een musicus is uit z'n instrument gegroeid. De volgende bespelers van deze instrumenten staan gelukkig vaak alweer klaar. Tijdens een nieuwe reeks Huisconcerten ten kantore van het NMF, laten we graag enkele van deze verhalen aan u horen.

Amarins Wierdsma, violin
Edward Liddall, piano

Amarins Wierdsma and Edward Liddall are both distinguished graduates of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. They were 2017 YCAT finalists at the Wigmore Hall, playing the same Beethoven and Debussy pieces which they will be performing for our Society which had so enraptured the London audience.

Amarins is both a soloist and also first violinist of the London-based Barbican String Quartet. Performing with some well-known European Orchestras, she includes in her repertoire some of the most demanding concertos such as those by Bruch, Bach, Brahms, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn and Sibelius.

Edward studied at the Royal College of Music and Kings College Cambridge. He is now pursuing a dual career as soloist and accompanist, and has also given a highly acclaimed performance of the Schumann piano concerto.

Their London engagements have included recitals at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Wigmore Hall and the Barbican.
