During the first Cello Biënnale in 2006, we celebrated the 75th birthday of Sofia Gubaidulina, who was there at the festival, with a performance of all her works starring the cello. At this edition, Capella Amsterdam and Pieter Wispelwey impressed the audience with the spectacular Canticle of the Sun.

Previous Biënnales have also featured romantic works for cello and choir by Rudi Tas and Anton Arenski. Despite her young age, Mathilde Wantenaar is one of the most performed composers of The Netherlands. Choir and cello are no strange combination to her, as she studied both cello and voice for some time at conservatoire.
