Starting May 13, you too can experience the enchantment of song during the International Lied Festival Zeist: ten days of the most beautiful recitals, the best singers and pianists, fascinating masterclasses by the greatest artists and spirited educational performances. Come on over and immerse yourself in the most intimate and oldest form of music-making: singing songs! Did you get curious?
You only need four elements to create magic: a voice, a piano, a text, and music. No wonder numerous composers wrote their masterworks for this fascinating team. Baritone Henk Neven and pianist Hans Eijsackers introduce you to this wonderous new world with gems of art song. For over fifteen years, they have worked together as a lied-duo, performing in the most inspiring venues worldwide, recording CDs and playing for the BBC. They inexhaustibly devote themselves to the magic of song and wish to share it with you. This May, they will succeed bass-baritone Robert Holl as artistic director of the International Lied Festival Zeist.
