25 years TIHMS

Since 1988 lessons and master classes in combination with stage experience form the core of The International Holland Music Sessions (TIHMS).
During the Summer Academy a new generation of soloists is intensively supervised and coached by internationally renowned musicians and pedagogues. The classes, together with the public concerts taking place during the Summer Academy, may be the first step toward an invitation to perform in prestigious concert halls in the Netherlands as well as around the world.

De Tsjechische cellist Eduard Šístek en de Amerikaanse pianist Lee Dionne timmeren al enige tijd met succes aan de weg. Beiden kunnen inmiddels bogen op een interessante solocarrière en bewijzen nu dat dit geheel terecht is met even mooi als ambitieus repertoire. Šístek geeft zijn visitekaartje onder andere af met de even melancholische als woest obsessieve Cellosonate van Sjostakovitsj en Dionne laat zijn verfijnde pianotechniek optimaal tot zijn recht komen in het meesterlijke filigraanwerk van Maurice Ravel. Een dubbelrecital waar ongetwijfeld lang over nagepraat wordt.
