Music for Breakfast: the lost paradise

Chamber music16 Oct '22(Past)

Breakfast concert on Sunday morning


It sounds like a fairy tale: the merchants of the Sicilian town of Siracusa, who sing like sirens touting their fish. Yet they really exist; Jacob ter Veldhuis incorporated their vocals into his Syracuse Blues. Alluring music – but how long will it be before the seas are fished out? Against that undertone of menace, this concert unfolds like a cycle of songs and prayers from paradise lost.

Music for Breakfast

Begin the day in an unhurried manner, enjoy a delicious breakfast and lovely music. An hour of pure gold for you and for each other on Sunday morning. Treat yourself to a musical breakfast put together by musicians of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. After you have enjoyed a delicious Sunday morning breakfast, they will lull you with calming Sunday morning music, but will also shake you awake with espresso shots of new music. Music for Breakfast – it promises to be an hour of pure magic!
