We have been so lucky to create such an amazing new concept of concert series with help of many wonderful organisations such as A Lab and Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. Now we are also happy to announce that the official Auditory Reset 2023 season is going to he supported by AFK as well.
During the first four concerts we could introduce our new concept, bring in more and more audience and also started new cooperations which will open even more possibilities for the future concerts. We are making our concerts more educational, reachable and closer to the audience.
Our February concert brings a well-known Dutch accordion player Vincent van Amsterdam to play exceptional pieces by two contemporary composers – Luciano Berio and Sofia Gubaidulina. Come on the second Tuesday – the 14th – at 18:00 to the Playground in A Lab, Amsterdam. Tickets are possible to buy on the spot or via our website through programme page.
As you might all know, recent years were for the art field very difficult and challenging to plan and secure all the work we put into making music possible.
At the end of last year wasn’t any different and thus we were apprehensive to our programme mainly for the winter time.
We are glad that we could so far examine our aims and organise all the concerts as planned. We gained audience, expanded with more cooperations to share our concert line in the upcoming time and thus were able to make sure the whole programme of 2023 can continue without any change.
On January the 10th, our ‘trial period’ is officially finishing with a concert of a wonderful Dutch oboist Arthur Klaassens who is going to perform three short yet intriguing pieces: a premiere ‘So it Goes’ by Patrick van Deurzen, our traditional Berio’s ‘Sequenza’ (this time number VII) and as the last ‘The Garden of Love’ by Jacob ter Veldhuis.
The year 2022 is almost at the end, but we still have one last concert ahead of us. Next Tuesday, the 13th of December, we are presenting a wonderful Dutch-American singer Katharine Dain. She is going to perform Berio’s Sequenza III and song Ariel from Jonathan Dove. You can purchase tickets via this link.
We are also opening the ticket sales for the first four concerts in 2023. Following the usual timing, every second Tuesday of the month, from 18:00, in the Playground, A Lab in Amsterdam. Look at our programme page with more information.
