I was in Amman this week. My Jordanian friend Malak took me on a hike with some of her friends and family. We walked through the beautiful hills of Ajloun. I was however a bit shocked by the amount of garbage people leave behind, but it gives me hope that some people are good enough to clean up after others. People, please, don’t trash tis earth and if you do see plastic in nature, help her a little like we did. It’s a really small effort.
PS: the tea was delicious! (See last photo for preparation method 😅)

Lieve Amsterdammers,
Jullie hebben een grote bek. Ik waardeer dat.
Zullen we die be**en eens op elkaar afstemmen en samen een nieuw koorstuk instuderen? Het is geschreven door Guido van der Werve en we worden begeleid door een orkest. Ik geef je dan drie workshops voorafgaand aan de uitvoering op 7 oktober, met borrel natuurlijk! Doe je mee?

The last day of my composer's residency... the last movement of Bach's third Cello Suite.
It has been a wonderful journey, both inward (musically) and outward (online). ❤️Thank you all for being a part of it ❤️

J.S.Bach Cello Suite No. 2 - 2. Allemande

You know what? I found this one hard and I think it's because I can't pinpoint what I'm missing.

-Am I not accentuating the right notes to get the different voices to sing?
-Is it something in my phrasing?
-Should it be played more 'in time'?

I'm curious to hear what you think!

J. S. Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 - 2. Allemande

A beginning, something in the middle where you mess up and an end. Then it starts all over again.

Last night, I was analysing the next movement for this little new video series of me enjoying myself with the Bach Cello Suites.
I know it isn't news, but this man was SO GOOD! The Allemande is basically like any other hit song nowadays: just a repetition of 3 chords. Until last night I honestly had no idea of this complex simplicity. But I suppose that's just life... three chords: I-II-V-andbackto -I-

A beginning, something in the middle where you mess up and an end. Then it starts all over again. (Plus an extra heartbeat if you subscribe to my channel on the U-tube!)

Hope your days are also beautiful!
