Musical feast full of atmosphere and fire

Never before have they shared the same stage: pianist Severin von Eckardstein, cellist Quirine Viersen and flautist Aldo Baerten. In the Edesche Concertzaal they will provide an extra special experience, because the pieces they play are rarely heard on the concert stage. Severin, Quirine and Aldo create a musical feast full of atmosphere and fire! Haydn's cheerful Trio for flute, piano and cello sounds festive. The music will undoubtedly put a smile on your face, as Haydn's subtle musical jokes sometimes put you on the wrong track.

Severin von Eckardstein on what he wants to achieve during a concert:
"I hope to touch the audience with my journey through the music. That when I play, I tell people my story, especially during the more personal and intimate moments of a particular piece. I want to take people through breathtaking musical landscapes; perhaps bring back forgotten experiences."
(Read the interview with Severin von Eckardstein.)

Chopins Second Ballad

Frédéric Chopin and Gabriel Pierné are undisputed masters of atmosphere. With Chopin's Second Ballad, Severin von Eckardstein takes you to the dream world of medieval legends and legends. Just as atmospheric is Pierné's Sonata da camera with subtle references to the baroque. And the fire? Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos takes care of that. His piece Assobio a Játo exudes the fervour of Brazilian folk music.

Easy Weber


With his choice of Weber's Trio, op. 63 as his final piece, Severin von Eckardstein brings together all kinds of elements from earlier pieces. This piece is also full of musical jokes. The slow middle section with its poetic title 'The lament of the shepherd' is moving and melancholic. The piece ends with a fiery finale, with which Severin, Quirine and Aldo let you go home elated.

Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959)

Assobio a Játo

Quirine Vierssen (Cello)

Aldo Baerten (fluit)

    Assobio a Játo (de titel betekent zoveel als 'De straaljagerfluit') voor fluit en cello is een goed voorbeeld van de exotische componeerstijl van Villa-Lobos. Zijn keuze voor fluit en cello biedt een maximum aan contrast tussen hoog en laag, metaal en hout, lucht en draad, adem en strijkstok. Een bijzonder effect klinkt tegen het eind van het stuk, wanneer de fluitist adem door de fluit blaast zonder klank te maken; inderdaad het geluid van een overvliegende straaljager.

    null Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

    Trio for flute, piano and cello in g, op. 63

    Quirine Viersen (Cello)

    Aldo Baerten (fluit)

    Severin von Eckardstein (Piano)

    • I. Allegro moderato
    • II. Scherzo. Allegro vivace
    • III. Schäfers Klage. Andante espressivo
    • IV. Finale. Allegro

    Carl Maria von Weber is best known for his operas such as Oberon and Die Freischütz. Weber's chamber music, on the other hand, is still a well-kept secret, such as this atmospheric Trio, op. 63. The slow third movement, 'The lament of the shepherd', especially appeals to the imagination. The music evokes the image of a lonely shepherd playing a cantabile ballad on his flute.

    Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849)

    Ballade nr. 2 in F, op. 38

    Severin von Eckardstein (Piano)

      Chopin wrote a total of four ballads of which Severin von Eckardstein plays the Second Ballad. In the Middle Ages ballads were narrative and imaginative songs sung by the minstrel. Of course Chopin's Second Ballad is not sung, but the piece does sound like a thrilling story with a poetic beginning and a more powerful middle section.

      Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

      Trio for flute, piano and cello in G, Hob. XV, nr. 15

      Quirine Viersen (Cello)

      Aldo Baerten (fluit)

      Severin von Eckardstein (Piano)

      • I. Allegro
      • II. Andante
      • III. Allegro moderato

      Of the 45 piano trios written by Haydn, only two are for the combination of flute, cello and piano. Much of what makes Haydn's music unique can be heard in it. The Haydn Trio sounds cheerful, fresh, witty and surprising.

      null Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937)

      Sonata da camera, op. 48

      Quirine Viersen (Cello)

      Aldo Baerten (flute)

      Severin von Eckardstein (Piano)

      • I. Prélude
      • II. Sarabande
      • III. Finale

      The title 'Sonata da camera' (a sonata to be played in the living room) is mainly baroque. And indeed, the movements entitled 'Prelude' and 'Sarabande' point in the direction of the baroque. The music on the other hand is impressionistic and sounds light and airy.
