From intensely cheerful sounds to horrifying tones – Puls en Adem is a concert of extremes. It promises to be an evening of incredible energy with three strong women in music: violinist Liza Ferschtman and conductor Mei-Ann Chen, and the composition of Fjóla Evans.
We start with Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2. One of his more traditional works full of romance and melancholy, played by top Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman. Then the Dutch premiere of ‘Lung’, with which the Canadian and Icelandic Evans won the Gaudeamus Award 2020. The final piece is the enigmatic Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar. The intensity of this concert is reinforced by conductor Mei-Ann Chen: as a player and as an audience you cannot escape her energy.
