Album Presentation ‘The Zoo’ – Merel Vercammen

#IMPROVISATIONS #MODERNCLASSICAL #VIOLIN

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Violinist Merel Vercammen is very succesful with performing the classical repertoire, but in her heart she’s a real improvisor. In a style that she describes as “free classical”, she aims to bring back the long standing tradition of classical improvisation, creating music in the moment.

Tonight she presents her brand-new album with improvisations that is released on the progressive Utrecht-based label TRPTK. On this album, and on this night, she improvises in several duos, with pianist Rembrandt Frerichs and cellist Maya Fridman among others.

Merel Vercammen presents her new album in De Volkskrant:
