Diskotabel op NTR Radio 4

8 March 2020

Sunday 8 March the recording of the Viola concerto by Henk Badings was discussed in the Dutch National Radio program Diskotabel. A panel consisting of music journalist Frederike Berntsen, conductor Jurjen Hempel and pianist Camiel Boomsma listened to the recording and expressed their opinions, without any information on forehand. Some of the responses:

  • "I think it's great that a Dutch school does this. We are often not proud enough of our Dutch talent."
  • "By taking such a risk they feed an important climate. A climate of experiment. We really need more of that in the Netherlands."
  • "If this sets the tone for what is to come, then the Royal Conservatoire is doing an amazing job."

You can listen to the entire clip on the Radio 4 website.
