The Opening Concert traditionally presents an overview of the festival program. Apart from these previews you will hear two beautiful pices by Ravel. The heartbreaking Jewish song Kaddish, in a version for cello and piano, and a virtuoso adaptation of Ravel's Bolero for four pianists, arranged by Juan Zurutuza. A more spectacular beginning of the birthday edition of the Peter de Grote Festival is hardly possible!

Price concert: € 24,-
