DNK DAYS concert: “Dante Boon Plays Rhodes with Sijstermans and Cater”

ROZENSTRAAT – A rose is a rose is a rose

“Dante Boon Plays Rhodes with Sijstermans and Cater”


DNK Days, in collaboration with ROZENSTRAAT, is delighted to present a concert under the guidance of Dante Boon. Dante is an Amsterdam based pre-eminent pianist specialising in experimental and Wandelweiser music. We invited Dante to create a program for the ROZENSTRAAT – A Rose is A Rose is A Rose gallery space where he will play a Rhodes piano. The Rhodes is a classic electro-mechanical keyboard, producing sound with keys and hammer, much like a piano, with metal tines replacing the piano’s strings. Creating tones from delicate to rough, from soft to loud. An incredibly versatile instrument.


This concert will be in two parts, solo and with small ensemble. Dante will be joined by Germaine Sijstermans, a young Dutch clarinettist and composer, currently making waves among the quiet and gentle music circles, and Seamus Cater of DNK Days, playing duet concertina.
