Joost Willemze harp

Harpist Joost Willemze, finalist of the Dutch Classical Talent Tour & Award, combines two loves, the harp and classical languages, in this concert. He loves Greek mythology.
“Like a Greek god, he plays the harp. With its serene appearance and stylized program, it shows us how beautiful simplicity can be. Beautiful, big sound and clear virtuosity', according to the jury of the Dutch Classical Talent Award.

Orpheus en Eurydice

The sad love story of Orpheus and Eurydice still inspires the creative urge of artists all over the world. Harpist Joost Willemze, currently one of the greatest harp talents in the Netherlands, tells their story with great feeling on his instrument. Connoisseurs are at a loss for words to describe his achievements and he himself is probably closeted for the prizes he wins. It's fun from start to finish. From the wistful Pour le tombeau d'Orphée by the 20th-century Dutch composer Marius Flothuis, to the dreamy Stanza II by his Japanese contemporary and colleague Toru Takemitsu.
