50 years stage anniversary, the 70th birthday is also over. What else can a musician do?
or better still, what can we expect as an audience?
There are artists who used up all their creative ideas with their first CD and then reproduce themselves again and again. And those who live the music. One of them is the Dutch pianist Jasper van´t Hof. Full of energy, constantly with new projects.
Before the award ceremony, Van ‘t Hof played a new acoustic arrangement – for four horns and piano – of one of his earlier works and then appeared on the BIM HUIS stage with his recently formed group BE Trio. Van ‘t Hof took his audience on a journey into the heart of his music. The Dutch press wrote:
“What he does with the young members of his trio sounds as fresh and exciting as his work with his larger ensembles; every aspect of his performance impresses with the embodiment and articulation of his unique style and musical universe” (Jazznu/ NL).
