Locatie: LantarenVenster


With his roots in Zeeland, The Netherlands, composer Martin Fondse explores this province’s nature in his project Forces of Water for saxophone quartet, drums, bass and keyboards. Inspired by the 1953 flooding that claimed the lives of 1,836 inhabitants of Zeeland and countless animals, the suite reflects water’s dual nature: destructive yet essential to life. Fondse, a jazz and contemporary music pianist, is currently Composer Laureate of The Netherlands, an honorary title representing Dutch contemporary music. In his world, boundaries between genres like classical music, jazz, Latin and world music cease to exist.
