venues for this concert
For 90 minutes, we submerge the audience in romantic love, that is sung in all stadia. The programme is a mix of Wende’s own songs, covers and classical pieces, with her love-resume as the central theme. The covers are from songs by Stromae, David Bowie, Shirley Bassey, Nina Simone, Charles Aznavour en Jacques Brel. Wende will also sing When I am laid in earth from Purcells Baroque opera Dido and Aeneas. The classical works by Rameau, Lekeu and Dessner compliment and connect to the performance in a very natural way.
“The connection that I have with Amsterdam Sinfonietta is very valuable to me”, Wende says. “We created a story about love, which is so important in our time - for me, for you, for everyone. That’s why it’s such a pleasure to be able to revisit this performance, and in the most beautiful hall in The Netherlands!”
