Marianne Hofman, harp &Ramon van Engelenhoven, piano - De Rode Hoed
Program Info: Harpist Marianne Hofman is bringing a varied program to the Grachtenfestival this year. She will play pieces by Hindemith, Flothuis and Fauré. During the concert Marianne will take the audience into the stories behind these works for harp solo.
The Dutch harpist Marianne Hofman (Arnhem, 1995) studied with Ernestine Stoop at the School for Young Talent of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where she obtained her propaedeutic certificate. She then obtained her Master of Arts degree with Arielle Valibouse at the School of Arts (Royal Conservatory) in Ghent (with great distinction) and then her Postgraduate Soloist Classical Music Diploma. Subsequently, in 2021 she obtained her Masters in Orchestral Instruments at the Universität der Kunsten in Berlin with Marie-Pierre Langlamet (Berliner Philharmoniker) and Marion Ravot. Since February 2022, Marianne is 1st solo harpist of the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra in Tallinn. Marianne has won prizes at international competitions, including third prize in the Honda Competition for Classical Music 2018 in Brussels.
The piano transcription takes center stage during Ramon van Engelenhoven's concert. First, there are two famous orchestral works, starting with Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune in a recent arrangement by the Russian pianist Vyacheslev Gryaznov. Then comes perhaps the most famous piano arrangement ever written: Liszt's version of Wagner's 'Liebestod' from 'Tristan en Isolde'. Finally, we make the step from opera to film with music by Erich Korngold, a composer who initially caused a furore as a child prodigy in the European opera houses and later regarded as one of the founders of film music in America. He has a suite with music from the film the 'The Sea Hawk', composed and edited by Ramon van Engelenhoven himself as part of a new CD project".
Ramon van Engelenhoven (1995) completed his Masters in Classical Piano at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2019 with a 10. From a young age he has won prizes at several competitions, including first prize at the International Steinway Piano Competition (2012) and first prize at the Princess Christina Competition (2013). In 2015 Ramon won the Grand Finale of the Young Pianist Foundation Competition. As a soloist he has performed with orchestras such as the Philharmonie Südwestfalen, the Real Filharmonía de Galicia, Phion (Orchestra of Gelderland), and the Noord-Nederlands Orkest.
