For one afternoon only, the navy grounds will be given over to a musical movement for which no official label yet exists. The Grachtenfestival and Paradiso jointly present two ‘Neo-classicists’: young, classically trained pianists and composers who effortlessly apply traditional compositional structures to genres such as trip hop and rock.
Nils Frahm is a 20-something musician and composer whose work is reminiscent of the minimalist sounds made famous by Reich, Glass and Andriessen, yet displaying an unprecedented power in his musical execution.
At 26, the Swedish pianist, singer and songwriter Anna von Hauswolff is known for her expressive voice and live performances, and is often compared with Kate Bush.
