Jan Ladislav Dussek ' Chansonette'  

- Diaspora as music and pianist -

Corona has caused physical distance between many of us. Between you and your family, friends and even your hometown. There are many people living abroad who miss their home country. Many composers from the 19th centuries were Bohemian. They left their own country and never returned.

I am also a diaspora pianist who lives far from my home country. I would like to take this opportunity to share some beautiful music of these diaspora composers. 

This is a film of 5 minutes livestreamed concerts via Facebook from the beautiful Castle Loenersloot in the Netherlands. Maybe their nostalgia and lonesomeness will touch you as well.

De Sweelinck Collectie

De Sweelinck Collectie historische toetseninstrumenten (o.a. ruim 40 tafelpiano's) is in de tweede helft van de 20e eeuw opgezet door Rien Hasselaar. Destijds nam belangstelling voor de authentieke muziekuitvoering van 18e en 19e eeuwse muziek toe, mede als gevolg van de hang naar grotere authenticiteit en terugkeer naar de oorsprong, die sedert de jaren '60 de maatschappij in beweging bracht.
