The Andriessen/De Klerk Festival 2017

In 2017 we are remembering that Hendrik Andriessen was born 125 years ago and Albert de Klerk 100 years ago. What better place is there to celebrate this than the city where both these prominent musicians were born: Haarlem.

From 15 September until 3 October 2017 the centre of Haarlem will reverberate to the music by these two composers. Musicians from home and abroad will perform in several churches and concert halls in a wide ranging programme of chamber music, piano and organ music, songs, oratorios and choral works. All of these composed by Hendrik Andriessen and Albert de Klerk of course.

And there is more. We are proud to announce the Louis Andriessen, Hendrik’s world famous son has composed a new composition for organ commissioned by the festival. There is also a an exhibition to be seen about the lives of both Hendrik Andriessen and Albert de Klerk in Museum Haarlem. And there is a plaque that will be unveiled at the houses where both composers were born and there is an accompanying book written especially for the festival. These are just a few activities which will take place during the festival.

Haarlem can be proud of both these artists. We hope that the Andriessen/De Klerk Festival in 2017 will attract a large public. It promises to be an unforgettable experience!
