percussion and piano, new repertoire, Moritz Eggert

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

Duo Simons | Napolov are passionate advocates of new repertoire for percussion instruments and piano. Their programme The Collectors is a compilation of works especially written for them. 

On the programme among others The Collectors, a piece by the well-known composer Moritz Eggert. A virtuoso piece where humor and absurdism alternate with intense serious moments and notes are interrupted by surprising visual and sound effects.
