Take a wonderful journey through musical history at this lunchtime concert, with works by four master composers. The profound sounds in "Elegy" immerse you in an introspective atmosphere. But you also hear dramatic tension through expressive sounds and contrasts. In addition, the melancholic experience of changing seasons also plays a major role. A diversity in style and emotion, filled with passion weaves a rich musical tapestry that draws you under its spell. Every note played this afternoon is a unique part of the combination of masterpiece you are listening to.

Andrej is studying at the Maastricht Academy of Music and has already had the opportunity to give several solo performances. At Boris Berezovsky's international festival, he played with orchestra in front of an audience of 6000! 

Anastasia Safonova is a pianist with beautifully colourful and poetic playing. Her constant engagement, fascinating energy and deep musical understanding are often praised. Her solo CD "Vol vers l'étoile" was released in 2021 and was rated 10 by the music magazine "Luister"!
