Song duo Verheijen van Loon will give a concert of Schubert's Winterreise at Het Cenakel in Tilburg on Friday, Nov. 4.
Bram and Joris together form duo Verheijen van Loon. They met during their studies in the year 2000. Bram studied English, musicology in Nijmegen and early vocal music at the conservatory in Tilburg. Joris studied music therapy and piano in Nijmegen and song accompaniment at the conservatories of Zwolle and Maastricht. For both, the sung story is a passion. So their first joint project is Schubert's Winterreise. In it Bram's Gregorian-trained tenor voice comes together with the fortepiano as it sounded in Schubert's time.
They were and are coached by Steven Faber, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Rebecca Stewart. They have been performing this song cycle together since 2019, with a first tour of the Netherlands in 2021. Joris plays on a fortepiano built for him by firm Maene after a copy of an instrument by Johann Fritz (1811) from Vienna.
The ticket prices are €17 normal price and €12 for students/till 28 years.
