Song duo Verheijen van Loon gives Sunday, Oct. 30
a concert of Schubert’s Winterreise at the Buurkerk in Egmond-binnen.
Bram and Joris together form duo Verheijen van Loon. They met while training in the year 2000. Bram studied English, musicology in Nijmegen and early vocal music at the conservatory in Tilburg. Joris studied music therapy and piano in Nijmegen and song accompaniment at the conservatories of Zwolle and Maastricht. For both, the sung story is a passion. Consequently, their first joint project is Schubert’s Winterreise. In it, Bram’s Gregorian-trained tenor voice meets the fortepiano as it sounded in Schubert’s time.
They were and are coached by Steven Faber, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Rebecca Stewart. As early as 2019, they will perform this song cycle together, with a first tour of the Netherlands in 2021. Joris plays on a fortepiano built for him by firm Maene after a copy of an instrument by Johann Fritz (1811) from Vienna.
