The Martijn Padding Show!- Cello Biënnale
One of the best Dutch composers
The Cello Biënnale 2020 is placing Martijn Padding in the spotlight.
Martijn Padding’s music never fails to put a smile on your face. In addition to being a great composer, he has also been an passionate teacher for decades, inspiring younger generations of composers. His music is original, filled with virtuosity, often tongue-in-cheek, and always a perfect fit for the musicians. Padding’s music has a special way of communicating with the audience, supported by the fact that the musicians joy creates a ripple effect in the audience. His immense oeuvre offers a special place for the cello.
Martijn Padding: “I developed as a composer partially due to years of improvising with a friend cellist at the conservatory. Through the cello I managed to enter the world of string music as a pianist composer.”
The new work by young composer Alexandre Kordzaia was selected by Padding.
