About

In the upcoming season 2019-2020, Herz Ensemble will premiere a cycle of works by composer Kate Moore entitled The Crow and Other Short Stories. Working together with Herz Ensemble, Orgelpark and composer Kate Moore, we are raising money to record these pieces and release a new album. The cycle of pieces, form a set of stories told through the medium of music. The subject of the project is about collective mythologies and storytelling whereby the common theme is the Crow, holding symbolic significance in many cultures. The crow becomes the main character and mascot for the cycle, portrayed through musical symbolism, and linking theme between the pieces, a messenger for Mother Earth. The title track, The Crow, is a new commissioned work from Orgelpark for solo organ and pan-pipes. The lively Herz Ensemble band features violinist Jellantsje de Vries, violist Elisabeth Smalt, cellist Lidy Blijdorp, saxophonist Tom Sanderman, pan-pipes Matthijs Koene, organist Geerten van de Wetering, percussionist Meiyi Lee, pianist Laura Sandee, didgeridoo Lies Beijerinck, counter tenor Kaspar Kroner! 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is to find friends and supporters who will help us raise funds to cover the costs of making our album including the costs of equipment, sound engineer, studio-time, production, post production, design, mastering, printing, releasing and marketing, all of which take both time and money!
