The composer, pianist and producer of programs of radio and television Kees Wieringa wrote the work Zorro for the Tango Festival in Alkmaar (Holland), cross-over between contemporary classic music and the tango. Like an intelligent 'fox', Kees Wieringa
presents/displays his vision of the tango: the tango as fair music and as higher folk music. The masked popular hero Zorro fights
throughout the history of the cinema against the tyranny of the Spanish invaders. Wieringa has made use of an own technique work 'germ cell technique'. Starting from small melodic or rythmic aims through gradually a larger structure arises.
First performance : Festival Tango à la Carte, 30 de junio del 2006, Alkmaar (Holanda)
Dance: Maximiliano Ávila y Elizabeth Guerrero
Sonsoles AlonsoSonsoles holds degrees in Classical Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Madrid and the Manhattan School of Music (Master's Degree) in New York.
She also studied privately with Vitalij Margulis in Freiburg (Germany) and with Philip Kawin in New York.
At the Conservatory of Amsterdam she followed the course 'Contemporary Music through Non-Western Techniques' focusing on rhythmic complexity.
She has participated in masterclasses given by Lazar Berman, Nicolas Hodges, Karl-Ulrich Schnabbel and Ronald Farren-Price.
While in New York, Sonsoles developed an interest in contemporary and improvised music which was influenced by her teachers Anthony de Mare (20th-century piano literature) and Morton Feldman's disciple Nils Vigeland (20th-century analysis).
She moved to Amsterdam in 1996 and continued to specialize in the interpretation of contemporary music as a soloist and as a member of various ensembles.
She enjoys working with many composers, both young and established from which she often commissions new pieces.
She collaborates with established performers as well and often does projects which involve other disciplines and/or cross-overs between music styles. (Live)-electronics is also a main focus. Recently she performed the concert series P.A.T with singer Jannie Pranger, a program of solo piano and solo voice with electronics.
The Australian cellist, John Addison, graduated with honours from the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music.
Since 1991 he has lived and worked in the Netherlands performing extensively throughout Europe with various chamber music groups. His main focus is the performance of 20th and 21st century music and in 1998 he founded the Zephyr String Quartet.
Regularly giving workshops for composers and performers, he is currently working on the "Contemporary Cellist's Companion", etudes and exercises for the modern day cellist.
He performs on a cello made by Romeo Antoniazzi on generous loan from the National musical instrument Foundation in Amsterdam.
Addison feels a special affinity to the music of Sofia Gubaidulina and he has all of her concertante works in his repertoire. For more information visit www.johnaddison.eu
