On Thursday 1st September 2011 at 8 pm, the public is invited to a concert of largely solo guitar works and several songs with guitar accompaniment. It’s the first time that Robert Bekkers will collaborate with counter tenor Yakov Zamir, an authority on the vocal works of Franz Liszt. The combination of counter tenor and classical guitar is very unique. They will perform vocal works of Cesti, Scarlatti, and Bellini.
The solo guitar works had earlier received a welcome reception in the Hague, Netherlands, at the Grote Kerk on 7th August 2011.
The audience is invited to socialise with the artists after the concert. Visit the JP Concerts website for information about the performers.
