Brahms concert series in Groningen

“Study Bach, there you will find everything.”

Johannes Brahms

Due to the success of the ‘Totally (in love with) Bach’ concert series, Jobine Siekman will perform three times at the Lutherse Kerk in Groningen again in the upcoming season. The composer in focus for the 23/24 season, chosen by the audience, is Brahms! Although there is no solo cello music by Brahms, he has written various beautiful chamber music pieces where the cello plays a significant role. It promises to be an interesting and diverse series featuring different ensembles and colleagues of Jobine. On the 29th of October Coraline Groen (violin) and Rik Kuppen (piano) & Sofie van der Schalie (viola) will be the guests, and on the 3rd of February 2024, the musicians of the Delphine Trio will perform, along with a vocalist. Finally, a new ensemble, renamed Jobine & Friends for this occasion, will play the sextet in B-flat major and other works for that ensemble on the 1st of June 2024.
As an admirer of Bach and the cello (which he played himself), Brahms is the perfect continuation of the ‘Totally (in love with)’ series. Join us in experiencing the lyrical, ingenious compositions, ranging from intimate to grand and even symphonic!
Below are the complete concert programs, and on the ticket website you can read about the different ensembles and guest musicians who will be performing. This season, there’s an extra treat for those who order the Passe-partout: besides tickets to all three concerts, you’ll also receive an exclusive video of a performance of an arrangement of songs for cello & piano by Jobine, one week before each concert.
