Don Quichot verliefd
On Friday, June 14th, 2019 together with baritone Jos Smeets I will present new program “Don Quichot verliefd” in Dorpskerk Wilp. This evening we will perform songs of French composers: Ravel, Ibert, Fauré, Roussel, Duparc, Bizet and others.
Maurice Ravel en Jacques Ibert composed songs about Don Quixote. And these songs served as a starting point for this lovely program. A set of three songs by Maurice Ravel, written in 1932-1933, was Ravel’s last completed work. It had been commissioned for a film by G. W. Pabst starring F. Chaliapin. But the slowness of Ravel’s composing meant that the songs were not used, and Jacques Ibert provided some songs instead.
The 14th of June, 2019 at 8 p.m. in Dorpskerk Wilp baritone Jos Smeets, piano Yaroslav Kolpakov and narrator Nils van Beek. Don’t miss it!
Your sincerely, Yaroslav Kolpakov
