City Recital Hall


Principal Double Bass Kees Boersma introduces a program of music that has inspired him during his career.

Our Dutch-born Principal Double Bass Kees Boersma has enjoyed a fantastically rich career with prestigious orchestras and ensembles around the world – for a time his “office” was the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. So it’s not surprising he’s chosen a playlist that reflects his European musical foundations. He’s including music by Beethoven and an intimate chamber music arrangement of Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen. Written near the end of World War II, the powerful and profound Metamorphosen stands today, says Kees, as “the greatest musical study on the futility of war”. But it’s not all serious, you’ll also hear music like Contrabajissimo by Tango king Astor Piazzolla – an alluring mix of infectious rhythms and “contrabass” virtuosity!

Join Kees and the musicians at the bar afterwards!
