The Soundcafé on tour


Every year, the fashionable Swiss skiing village of Gstaad changes into the location of one of the most unusual classical music festivals in Europe: the Gstaad Menuhin Festival. The Soundcafé has again been invited to visit this overwhelming festival for a few days. Last year we had the opportunity to talk to the star tenor Jonas Kaufmann. And we thought that nothing would be able to better that...

But this year we are going to talk to no-one less that Lang Lang! This piano virtuoso has already played for Obama in the White House, performed with Pharell Williams and Metallica and was in Time's list of the most influential people. In short, a unique artist who doesn't shy away from cross-overs with other genres. This can also be heard on his new album New York Rhapsody that will be released later this year. We will be talking to him about this album and about his vist to the Netherlands in November.Klankcafe on tour

And as if this were not enough, we
will also meet bass-baritone Bryn Terfel. This Welshman is famous for his enormous stage presence. Terfel, like Lang Lang, is also open for pop and rock music. Less than two
months ago he performed with the legendary Van Morrison. The Dutch public may also know him from his role in the opera Boris Goedonov by Mussorgsky. This production was broadcast live in cinemas throughout the country. Terfel not only had a leading role in the opera, he was
also one of the people responsible
for the live broadcast in the cinemas. We want to know more about such
a man...

Broadcast: Thursday 15 September from 18:00 to 19:00 CET.
