The Bunschoten Fund supports the Delft Chamber Music Festival
The first choice by the Board of The Bunschoten Fund in 2013 was the Delft Chamber Music Festival. The organization has received support for working on the financial continuity in the future in the form of a coaching program that will be executed in 2014.
Since its establishment in 1997 the Delft Chamber Music Festival has grown into a world class chamber music festival. In The Netherlands the Festival takes a special place: the audience comes from all over the country and even from abroad. Every year in the summer top classical musicians from all corners of the world come to Delft for ten days. There they perform in special and unique programs. In 2014 works from Arvo Pärt, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Maurice Ravel, Erich Korngold, Francis Poulenc, Gabriel Fauré, Béla Bartók and Johann Sebastian Bach were performed.
Besides the coaching program The Bunschoten Fund also sponsored the Jong Talent Dag (Young Talent Day) on July 30, 2014, a special day in the program of the Delft Chamber Music Festival, with its motto Seen and Be Seen. Upcoming talent — from fresh to almost arrived — gave three short concerts in Het Prinsenhof:
• Mayte Levenbach and Léon Blekh, winners lordens Viooldagen 2014
• Rosalía Gómez Lasheras, winner YPF Pianoconcours
• Ragazze Kwartet, winner Kersjes Prijs 2013
Also on the program was Vis-à-vis, a unique experiment that answers the question as to whether music exists without people listening? In the former army museum Armamentarium the public became part of a special one-off musical installation.
