After two editions that were canceled within sight of the port, the IKFU is finally back in the familiar place between Christmas and New Year’s Eve! And the opening concert starts immediately with the most beautiful chamber music you could wish for! Guest programmer Amihai Grosz selected three gems to start with: the well-known second string sextet by all-time favorite Brahms, the romantic Maiblumen blühten überall in which soprano Alma Sadé will sound like a nightingale and the concert will be concluded by our own Janine Jansen who will solo in the concerto for violin, piano and quartet by Chausson. During this opening concert you can already meet the New Generation Artists: the Norwegian string quartet Opus 13 and great talent and also a student of Janine: Hana Chang.

This concert will be recorded by AVROTROS and broadcast live on NPO Radio 4 and via
