Today, February 5, is the birthday of my beloved partner and music-mate Leo de Klerk
(1958-2020) - Audio-specialist, inventor, pianist and composer.
Please listen to his “Chaconne”, a piece that had a special place in my programs in previous concert seasons: Here, in performance on December 29, 2012 in the Stadsgehoorzaal of Leiden.
Leo intended to expand this work; the Chaconne would become part of a larger Opus.
The theme, a lascivious 16th century dance from the Caribbean, springs from Leo’s musical pen as a rainbow: intimate and turbulent at the same time.
Dreaming with open eyes – as only children can!
