In the concert series Miniatures of Music and Visual Arts, works of art are linked to musical themes. In four videos, musicians perform intimate concert pieces by J.S. Bach and others, with Escher and his birthplace as sources of inspiration. Violinist Tosca Opdam, viola player Dana Zemstov, harpist Petra van der Heide, double bass player James Oesi and accordionist Vincent van Amsterdam perform the music in varying configurations.
In the first of the four-part concert series the musicians will perform Nos. 1, 4, 6, 15 and 8 from Bach’s Two-part Inventions in the Princessehof’s palace room. In the other three videos, viewers can enjoy a selection of compositions by F. Kreisler, Mozart, Bartók and Berio, and others.
