‘New Year Music Festival’ is an exciting new co-production by Stiftfestival and Classical NOW!, with Studio 150 Bethlehemkerk. Seven chamber music concerts will be live-streamed in the first three days of 2021.
After the forced cancellation of this year’s Stift Midwinterfestival (of which Daniel is Artistic Director), which was due to take place at the end of December, the “New Year Festival” has been created in its place. The concerts will be streamed from Studio 150 Bethlehemkerk, a world-class recording studio-church in Amsterdam, in collaboration with innovative concert promoter Classical Now in The Hague.
After we had to cancel this years Stift Midwinterfestival I’m really happy & excited that it will now happen online! … I can’t wait to kick off 2021 with these 7 exuberant, sparkling & adventurous concerts, including jazz, literature and even a brand new movie.
Throughout the seven concerts, Daniel will perform alongside a host of world-class chamber musicians: Anna Fedorova, Maja Bogdanovic, Natacha Kudritskaya, Fabian Fiorini, Dana Zemtsov, Nicky Schwartz, Floor Le Coultre, Tijmen Huisingh, Joël Waterman, Vladimir Mendelssohn and Pau Codina.
