The Dutch Student Orchestra: Dream! with Remy van Kesteren and Petroesjka

Experience the Dutch Student Orchestra during their yearly concert. The NSO exists of the best student musicians from the Netherlands. This year they’ll perform works by Stravinsky, Debussy, Ginastera and Kortekaas. With conductor Ivan Meylemans and soloist Remy van Kesteren (famous Dutch harpist) this concert promises to be an unforgettable experience!

Remy van Kesteren
World-class harpist Remy van Kesteren plays the Concert for harp and orchestra by Ginastera. Unlike other harp concerts, this work is rhythmic, swinging and rousing. Ginastera wanted to make another, raw sound of the harp heard. Remy van Kesteren will let this dream become reality through his revolutionary way of playing and character.

Stravinsky’s Petroesjka
After the dreamy ‘Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune’ by Debussy, you will hear the enchanting ‘Petroesjka’ by Stravinsky. Within this ballet, the boundaries between reality and the dreamworld will blur. Let yourself be carried away by the challenging rhythm and the beautiful Russian melodies, performed by ambitious and young musicians from all over the Netherlands.
