Newsletter 25 aug.

Dear friends and colleagues,
After a great summer where we followed a beginners yoga course with Johan Noorloos at the ‘de Nieuwe Yogaschool’ in Amsterdam and then enjoyed a few sailing days in Friesland (NL) we are back home in the Beemster.
We hope that you are also looking forward to the new theater season.

This is the title from the new CD that will be presented on the 10th of October at the Muziekgebouw in Eindhoven. On the 7th and 9th of September at 20:00 hrs we will record live at Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht.

Specially for this CD we have asked the talented writer Abdelkader Benali to write a story in the CD booklet. What the story will be, we don’t know yet, but he will let himself be inspired by Carel and Lavinia’s music. On the CD there will be pieces from Piazzolla, Albeniz, Morricone and Kraayenhof, among others.

The theater show ‘Liberación’ in Haarlem and Heerlen
On the 4th of September the Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble will give a concert at ‘Het Kruispunt’ in Vooschoten. The ensemble will play songs from the theater show ‘Liberación’.
Unfortunately the theater show ‘Liberación’, with it’s unique uneven floor, video wall and beautiful light decor designed by Uri Rapaport, will only be performed twice this season. For these shows you can reserve your tickets by clicking on the following links:
19 November Munttheater Weert (https://www.munttheater.nl/cgi-bin/munt.cgi?menu=550&mnd=15211&spdt=28564)

We wish you a great end of the summer. Maybe we will meet up soon in one of our next concerts. In mid September you will receive, together with our newsletter, a link to download a special composition by Carel (including music sheet for piano).

On Thursday 27th of August we will finally be able to see on TV to whom Carel and Wouter play a romantic song to during ‘Linda’s Zomerweek’ (RTL 4 – NL).

Newsletter 4 aug. Carel Kraayenhof

Dear friends and colleagues,
Thank you all very much for the nice reactions to the ‘insider’s view’ on our musicians in our website.
The Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble has started works again after our vacation and last Saturday had a sold out concert at the beach in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. It was a breath taking evening with a red sunset and a full moon!
Next weekend the Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble will give two concerts (with free entrance): on Saturday the 8th in Alkmaar (20:30 hrs) at the Canadeplein and on Sunday the 9th in Amsterdam at the Vondelpark (12:30 hrs).
After these concerts, the CKE can be heard again on the 4th of September in a beautiful church in Voorschoten (NL).

Wouter Hamel and Carel Kraayenhof
In our last newsletter we mentioned the TV broadcasting from the program ‘Linda’s Summer week” were Carel and Wouter Hamel perform a song together. Then we mentioned the broadcast would take place on the 28th of August, but it will actually be on the 27th of August, on RTL 4 (Dutch TV sender). The beautiful romantic song that will be performed on the show will then be available as a download on iTunes and via our own website (a small charge applies).

Lavinia Meijer and Carel Kraayenhof will record an album together
The record label from Lavinia Meijer, Sony Music The Netherlands, is currently looking into the possibilities for a collaboration album between Lavinia and Carel. This should happen in a very short future. The goal is for the album to be available for the first concert of this special duo in October. More information will be available soon on our website.

Album CD Juan Pablo Dobal and Carel Kraayenhof
At the end of July Carel and Juan Pablo have recorded their new album at Splendor in Amsterdam, called ‘Hotel Victoria’. At this moment it is not known when the album will be released, as Sony Music wants to have priority brining their album out. But we half way there with the material ready!
The next DUO concert, of August 27th at a roof in Amsterdam North, is sold out!
