On the magical power of the cello. With Persis Bekkering, Anna Enquist, Geneviève Verhage, Maarten Mostert and Mirjam van Hengel.
What makes everybody fall in love with that one instrument, able to draw numerous people to the Muziekgebouw eff ortlessly for ten days? What is it about the shape, the sound, the colour? Why do we describe its sound as melancholy, that sound that so easily touches upon the emotions? Writer and programming specialist Mirjam van Hengel speaks with journalist Persis Bekkering, and writer and psychologist Anna Enquist. Cellists Geneviève Verhage and Maarten Mostert reveal inside experiences and perform fragments. An exploration of the cello’s seductiveness!
