Song and dance are part of the very essence of being human. And they’re the fundamental building blocks of music. Pianists Einav Yarden and Hannes Minnaar take you on a journey as they explore the extremes of these fundamentals. 

Israeli pianist Einav Yarden kicks off with works by Haydn. In the 18th century, the motto of the time was ‘new, newer, newest’. Every piece and every phrase shake you awake. Every bar gives you a jolt and a jar. A recipe for lively and playful music. This passionate pianist is highly attuned to this and plays the music seemingly effortlessly – before you know it, you feel an urge to start dancing. 

Two centuries later, a completely new movement emerged as a reaction to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Composers started writing music that made its listeners drift off into a dream-like world. The motto had become ‘repetition, repetition, repetition’. New age, trance and minimal music are where this trend has evolved to today. Hannes Minnaar – one of the Netherlands’ best-known pianists – performs ‘Solo Devil Dance IV’ [Soloduiveldans IV] to lull mind and body into the ultimate trance state. 

If you can’t get enough of this, then Hannes Minnaar will be playing ‘Solo Devil Dance II’ [Soloduiveldans II] on Saturday.

    Hoe lang de Soloduiveldansen van Simeon ten Holt duren, weet niemand. De componist laat het aantal herhalingen aan de uitvoerder. Stap uit je dagelijkse hectiek en ervaar het hypnotiserende effect van de muzikale herhaling.  Wil je nog …
