Concert by cellist Roeland Duijne

Museu d’Història de València

C/ Valencia, 42.

(Opposite the Parque de Cabecera, next to 9 d’Octubre bridge).

Route 66 Idiomas calling all music lovers! Next Thursday, 24 January, the Valencia History Museum (MhV, Museu d’Història de València) will host a performance by ROELAND DUIJNE, the famous Dutch cellist, with a programme to include works by Bach, Maurice Horsthuis and Gaspar Cassadò.

Roeland Duijne is a highly-talented and internationally-renowned performer. He began studying music when he was only 9 years old and went on to train with distinguished maestros and professional musicians. He has been principal cellist in some of the most prestigious symphony orchestras from all over the world and since September 2006 he has been a soloist with the Magogo Chamber Orchestra.

The programme that he will perform at the MhV will begin with a Free Improvisation to Friedrich Gulda, composed by Duijne himself. This will be followed by an anthology of suites for solo cello by J.S. Bach (1685-1750) and the piece Al suelo by Maurice Horsthuis. Finally, he will play Suite for Solo Cello by Gaspar Cassadò (1897-1966). He will perform the entire concert on his beloved Giuseppe Sgarbi cello (1853).

A wonderful concert which promises to be an unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime experience for all music lovers made possible thanks to the involvement of Noviono (Muzikale Projecten die Verbinden), a Dutch cultural association of which Duijne is a member.

This concert is the first in a series of music events that the MhV has planned for 2013 to commemorate its tenth anniversary and which will be publicized later in the year.

The concert is open to all and free of charge subject to available space. As space is limited and the event is likely to be very popular, we recommend that you to make a reservation by calling 963 70 11 05.
