You may have never heard of Caspar Vos. And you will also wonder what a ‘ program without programme ‘ is. Both facts need explanations.
Caspar Vos has signed up for the Young Pianist Foundation competition at a young age. A springboard for young talent. However, he had to withdraw because of an injury. When his CD with works by the Russian composer Medtner came out in later years, the pianist was suddenly in the spotlight. And then it was getting faster. Vos made a second CD with work by the Catalan composer Mompou. Also this CD was very well received.
Caspar Vos has won the Dutch Classical Talent Award and made a tour with the program without program. He wants to let people listen to music in an uninhibited way. ‘ If you know that a Picasso painting is, do you look at it differently than if you don’t know ‘? Words of the pianist.
Caspar Vos asks your confidence to go along to an unfamiliar world.
During this recital, the pianist will present a young talent to you. It is the very gifted pianist Nikola Meeuwsen.
Caspar Vos is editor at Podium Witteman and programmer of the chamber music Festival Schiermonnikoog.
