Tickets for the upcoming Stiftfestival in the Netherlands go on sale to the general public today, Monday 6th July.
Artistic Director Daniel Rowland and the rest of the festival organisers are thrilled that they are able to run a ‘limited edition’ of their annual festival, with over 20 concerts and a hugely exciting list of artists, despite all of the hurdles!
Daniel Rowland looks forward to releasing a new disc in the autumn, featuring, amongst other landmark works by the composer, Pēteris Vasks’s second violin concerto ‘Lonely Angel’.
Daniel Rowland and the Stiftfestival management team have just announced that tickets will soon go on sale for their upcoming Limited Edition of the Summerfestival 2020. It will run from 23rd to 29th August, and will take account of the current guidance in the Netherlands in relation to COVID-19: events will have a maximum audience of 100 people, maintaining a 1.5-metre distance at all times. The themes of this edition, based on Beethoven’s life, are Isolation, Revolution, Freedom, Brotherhood, Nature and Love, which the organisers note now feel more important and relevant than ever.
Daniel and Maja will chat to presenter Katie Derham about their new CD ‘Pas de Deux’ on the Challenge Records Label, and perform music from the disc live in the studio. The duo will be featured near the beginning of the programme at 5.05pm, and the programme will be available shortly after broadcast via this link.
