Project with Leine Roebana continues next year

The successful cooperation between the Stolz quartett and the Leine Roebana dancers will get a follow-up at Oerol 2017. The production was awarded 4 stars in the NRC.


From the press:

"Moore's music is played live by The Stolz Quartet, that plays their own subtle part in the choreography. Stolz seems to be created for this kind of adventurous searching for the genre boundaries. The integration of disciplines is totally convincing. A wonderful highlight among the many touching and funny moments, is the solo of cellist Lidy Blijdorp." – NRC, Joep Stapel


"In 'Herz' the performance of oboist Schut is downright touching. Cellist Blijdorp is the most prominent appearance of the quartet with her uninhibited style and the sincere sounds from her instrument" – Noordhollands Dagblad, Nanska van de Laar

Lidy Blijdorp performs with Maria João Pires in Partitura project

In cooperation with the Chapelle Elizabeth (near Brussels), Maria João Pires has launched the Partitura project to create favourable circumstances for transmission, by encouraging reciprocal listening between generations: proposing well-known musicians to foster young musicians, to invite them (as the name suggests) to share the concert platform.
Lidy Blijdorp and Maria João Pires play Beethoven sonata
It is about rising to the challenge - for a music school like The Chapelle, a composer, a musician, even for everyone in the audience: it is about awakening that sound which can easily escape us, but which gives us all meaning.

One of these performances took place on 16 September, when Pires played a Beethoven concert with violinist Lorenzo Gatto and cellist Lidy Blijdorp in Auditorio Nacional, Madrid. The program consisted of a cello sonata, a violin sonata and the Ghost trio.
