DoelenKwartet (Frank de Groot, Maartje Kraan, Karin Dolman, Hans Woudenberg)
Jutta Puchhammer, viola
Lisa Eggen, viola

For the IVC2018 Opening Night Concert, the renowned DoelenKwartet (string quartet in residence at De Doelen concert halls) is joined by violists Lisa Eggen and Jutta Puchhammer (vice president of the International Viola Society) for an evening dedicated to viola quintets.
In his Epitaphs for string quintet, Brett Dean saw ‘the chance to explore the extended sonorities and textural possibilities of the “string-quartet-plus-one” formation. The work was especially informed by the very particular colouristic changes that arise by doubling the viola section, with the pair of violas frequently operating as a counterpart to the string quartet’s regular pair of violins.
The DoelenKwartet with added guest violists put Dean’s work in an historical perspective with Bruckner’s expansive F-major quintet and the magnificent Phantasy Quintet by Vaughan Williams.
This concert is organized with the kind cooperation of our IVC2018 Partner,  Kamermuziekvereeniging Rotterdam.
