Lemniscaat - Rondane quartet

The Huygens Festival is proud to present Simeon ten Holt´s Lemniscaat performed on four grand pianos by Rondane Kwartet.  Lemniscaat was completed in 1983 and is the first composition for four keyboard instruments that Simeon ten Holt wrote after Canto Ostinato. The composer defines the refrain as an invocation which is characterized by very long sounding chords contrasting with the restless movement of the sixteenth notes in the intervening episodes. Now and again impressive melodies develop from the minimalist structures. Simeon ten Holt once compared Lemniscaat to a toccata because of its capricious nature and virtuosity.

Canto Ostinato - Rondane quartet

Due to the corona crisis the concerts of April 14 and April 15 have been prosponded to November 24 and November 25. Tickets with the old dates remain valid. Please contact Stadsherstel Amsterdam for additional information: 020-5200060

During a performance the grand pianos are positioned in a cross shape formation. The pianists use specific signs to communicate and therefore it’s necessary their faces are turned towards each other. Owing to the substantial liberty of action every performance will be a musical adventure for both the pianists as the audience.

Canto Ostinato - Toon Hagen Orgel

Op 14 juli speelt organist Toon Hagen ‘Canto Ostinato’ van Simeon ten Holt op het Leeuwenbergh orgel. Dit bekende pianowerk krijgt een andere dimensie wanneer het op orgel wordt uitgevoerd. De lengte van het werk is onbepaald omdat het een aaneenschakeling is van 106 secties. Dit maakt het een spannende reis! De uitvoerende herhaalt de secties en bepaald zelf wanneer er overgegaan wordt naar een volgende secties. Bij het overgaan naar een volgende sectie treedt telkens een minimale wijziging op.
