This concert opens with a timeless melody accompanied by harp-like piano sounds, transporting us into a night full of melancholy and longing.Then the morning sun breaks through with the acclaimed Double Concerto of J.S. Bach; originally for 2 violins and orchestra and later rewritten by Bach himself for 2 keyboards. In Lidy Blijdorp, Pamela Smits and Tobias Borsboom it has three passionate advocates of high calibre in a version for two cellos and piano.
After the break we dive into sunny and festive scenes from South America to Spain. Impressions of evening scents in Granados, sultry flirtations in Barcelona, the characteristic districts of Rio de Janeiro, flamenco dancing, and beautiful women on the beaches of South America with the distant blue contours of the mountains in the background…Come and join us and immerse in all the exotic flavours!

"From the first note of the famous quintet the Pentachord Ensemble overwhelmed with their lightness, precision and very agile way of playing. Schubert escaped from all the clichés. Also is in all their smaller group arrangements The Pentachord a joy to the eye and ear, because of the dedicated music making of the musicians. A sparkling ensemble that left the audience of the museumchurch of Schokland in awe."
-from a review of the Noordoostpolder newspaper.
"The Trout Quintet can be reckoned among the gems of classical music. Of the Dutch music ensembles the Pentachord threads a long chain of gems with their way of playing. Moreover, for the entire ensemble applies that they posses a special musical gift and that they feel intensely connected to their instruments, one can see that, one can hear that."
-from a review of the Nieuwe Meerbode, Aalsmeer (NL)
