Pianist and composer Iris Hond has a unique position in the music world. She is loved for her inspiring way of storytelling, both with words and music. She bridges the gap between the world of classical music and the general public like no other with her passionate playing. In Close, Iris plays the music closest to her. In addition to her favorite pieces by Ludovico Einaudi and Frédéric Chopin, among others, she plays her own compositions, often inspired by the work of these composers.

To give the music an extra dimension, Iris will bring along an ensemble of top musicians specially composed by her: the string quartet Aristos Quartet and Gijs Anders van Straalen on percussion. Nearby is a candid, intimate and enchanting program in which Iris takes her audience with her inspired playing and inspiring anecdotes to the best that music has to offer.

During her last tour, Iris played the music of the famous Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi in the most important concert halls of our country. The highlight of this tour was a series of ten concerts in the Great Hall of the Royal Concertgebouw.
