Love is in the air!

14th of February is Valentine’s Day and we would like to offer you, as our much appreciated newsletter receiver, a free download of the composition ‘Milonga de mis Amores’ (composed by Pedro Laurenz, arranged by Carel Kraayenhof) from the CD ‘Tangueros de Holanda’.

 Carel with the MDR Sinfonieorchester (Germany), conductor Kristjan Järvi

On Wednesday Carel will travel to Leipzig (Germany) to rehearse ‘Suite Compassión’, together with conductor Kristjan Järvi and the MDR Sinfonieorchester. This will be the very first time that the suite will be played in Germany. The concerts will take place on the 8th of February in Suhl and on the 9th of February in Leipzig. On the MDR’s website you can find more information and an interview given by Carel about the concert.

Prins Carnaval Rules, conductor Arjan Tien

For the happy carnival period the Philharmonie Zuid-Nederland has planned a special program with several guest soloists, such as Ellen ten Damme, Kim Savelsbergh and Carel Kraayenhof. Carel will bring to the program the following compositions: Te Apartes a mi (by Francisco Repilado), Libertango, Adios Nonino (both by Astor Piazzolla) and ¡Fuerza! (by Carel Kraayenhof).

Concerts will take place on February 25 and 28 in Den Bosch and Breda (The Netherlands).


In between concerts Carel works on, writing new compositions for the upcoming theater tour ‘Liberación’. The financial investment for this project is quite high; therefore we have, for the very fist time in Carel’s carrier, applied for a subsidy at the ‘Fonds voor de podiumkunsten’ (fund for the performing arts) in The Hague.  In March we hope to hear if we were granted with the subsidy. For this process we received the assistance of Esther Ledeboer , who is also assisting us at the moment with the applications for the subsidies with the VSB-Fund and the Prins Bernard Fund. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that these subsidies will be granted to us so we can kick-start the project.

Met warme greetings,

Carel Thirza
