…We, Pip van Steen (flute, alto flute and piccolo), Marieke van der Lee (clarinet) and Marcel Siebers (piano), present you our newest program: “CLASSICAL (MOVIE) STUFF & SOME OWN BUSINESS”, own arrangements of well known compositions (a.o. Bach, Faure, Kachaturian) famous movie themes (a.o. Morricone, Mancini, Williams) and some own compositions.
When we started as a trio in 2012, we first played along with Will Derks (on mandoline), Pip and Marcel (our working title was: 3 shades of grey). Since 2014 Andrea Pieper (violin and double bass) replaced Will Derks and in 2020 Marieke van der Lee replaced Andrea Pieper. Every few years a new challenge with a new sound.
We named our first program of the 31-part ‘European Tour piece’: “Euro Suite & Other Change”.
A major part can be heard on the CD: ‘Selections of Euro Suite & Other Change’.
You’ll be surprised of how transparent the music sounds and how much difference there is in rhythm and melody in the folk music of the countries whereupon the music is based. The core of the music is composed but this will be relieved by improvisations. The music is for everybody and suited for all ages. To order the CD: go to the contact page.
Please have a look and listen to some examples at our playlist.
Even so surprising sounds the rock music in the recomposed chamber music version in our latest program ‘Focus on Dime‘. The compositions from this program are partly from the former rock band DIME in which Marcel has played the keyboards in the early seventies. He has arranged and recomposed 7 former rock songs into 6 chamber music songs and it sounds wonderful well! This selection is also available on our 2nd CD: “Paying with Dimes”. We recently added 8 own arrangements of the Dutch rock band Focus, compositions of Thijs van Leer and Jan Akkerman.
