Tabula rasa

with Candida Thompson and Simone Lamsma

In 2020 we played the Pärt über Bach program with Candida Thompson and Simone Lamsma, in which works by Pärt and Bach were intertwined. Maarten Corbijn and Georgios Rietveld made a short black and white film in their characteristic style from Arvo Pärts Tabula rasa, in which Thompson and Lamsma both play solos. Rietveld and Corbijn previously made the short films Misirlou and Tango for Amsterdam Sinfonietta.
