Willem Kes (1856-1934) Charakteristische Tanzweisen op.3 for violin (Emmy Storms) + piano (Vera Kooper)

July 20, 2010 at 6:51 PM

Willem Kes en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willem_Kes (1856-1934) was a composer and the 1th conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. Here his Charakteristische Tanzweisen op.3 for  violin + piano by
Emmy Storms violin + Vera Kooper piano. This is a life version of the 2th round of the National violin competition Oskar Back 2009 in the Netherlands. Emmy Storms ended later as 3th in the final and copied her cd of that round for me because this piece has never been released on cd, because the composer is quite obscure, even in Holland. But a good thing they promote him by forcing the candidates to play this piece. With reason forgotten? (perhaps you consider this piece 2th rank?)
