Meesters op de Gitaar
Together with Otto Vowinkel I organize Meesters op de Gitaar, the international guitar series in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The previous organizer wanted to stop. It seemed important to me the series continued. I suggested “Maybe I can do it” and after that I was an organizer as well as a guitarist.
It took me a while before I got the hang of it and I regularly cursed my “Maybe I can”. But the series is a success. We can conclude that.

The Muzikale Kring was a one-hour program in which musicians, programmers, impresarios, advisers, instrument makers, grant providers and reviewers talked about their profession, the love for their instrument, their favorite composer or musician. They were interviewed by Clairy Polak and musically accompanied by undersigned. The Muzikale Kring took place at the Kring, an Amsterdam based society for artists, scientists and art lovers, with 1900 members.
