Duo Bilitis performs their programme ‘Ballade Slave’ in De Korenwinde Rhenen (13th of January) and Agnietenhof Tiel (14th of January). Ballade Slave brings the music of one of Duo’s favorite composers, Claude Debussy together with the music by Peter Tchaikovsky. The two composers never met, but have a very strong link through madame Nadezhda von Meck, Tchaikovsky’s mecenas. Claude Debussy spent three summers in her house being her house pianist and piano teacher of her children, performing in her salons his own music, music of others and even making arrangements of Tchaikovsky’s compositions. Some of them you’ll hear during the concerts.
