2018 is the 125th birthyear of Federico Mompou. He studied in Paris where he was praised as 'the only true heir of Debussy' by the French critic Vuillermoz. Mompou was extremely shy and introvert, which is reflected in his music. Sadness, melancholy and a great desire to relife his lost childhood play a central role. His piano works are miniatures, which are characterised by a great silcence. Poetry by Marjoleine de Vos and Fons van Wanroij connect this silenced music with the rural scenery of the surroundings of Huizinge.
