‘Acoustic Roots’: Jalli Lamin KuyatehCafe Zimmermann

In the programme 'Acoustic Roots' of 20 March (21:00 - 22:00h CET) master kora player Jalli Lamin Kuyateh will be our guest in the Pieternel at the St.Peter's church in Utrecht.

Jalli Lamin Kuyateh is from Gambia and started his training to become a kora player at the early age of five. When he was ten-years old he per-
formed at ceremonies, parties and for tourists
- sometimes together with his father and sometimes with other musicians. In 1983 he started the Fiscoband, one of the first groups in which he combined the kora with other African and western instruments. In 1993 he left for Europe with the company Ifang Bondi. With this group he performed in many European countries, at large festivals and on large stages.

Special week ‘Bach Ad Infinitum’ in which audio books can be won!Johannes Passion

From 9 to 13 March (and in rerun on 19 to 20 March) you can listen to a special week of 'Bach Ad Infinitum':

A genuine Matthäus Passion diskotabel at which the listener has to guess who the performer is. We will go through sixty years of execution history of the Matthäus Passion.

If you know who the executors are, you stand a chance to win an audio book of choice (Matthäus or Johannes Pasion) from Govert Jan Bach, compiler of 'Bach Ad Infinitum'.

On Wednesday 11 March at 11:00h (CET) we will present a soloist portrait of Sigiswald Kuijken and on 25 March of Jordi Savall. On Friday 27 March our jubilee episode, this time twice as special...


250th Episode of 'Bach Ad Infinitum’

The team of 'Bach Ad Infinitum' has reached its 250th episode by now. The first broadcast took place on 5 November 2012. Now, a good two years later and 250 hours of entertaining radio further it is time to stand still and draw up the balance.Geen Dag Zonder Bach

This time not only anchor Joop van Zijl takes place in the tight studio of the Concertzender, but also programme maker and compiler Govert Jan Bach, who squeezed himself next to Joop.
A microphone is being added. For Joop an opportunity to question Govert Jan about 'Bach Ad Infinitum'.

These two together are notorious at the Concertzender. When they run into each other once every two weeks, they go all out when they catch up and go through every detail of what will be recorded that week. They discuss concerts, make corrections and check statements. Director Benno Wormgoor waits with a broad grin for the two to be ready.
