Canto Ostinato Tour: 100 jaar Ten Holt
Johanneskerk, Amersfoort
The 'Give Heart' concert tour

In early 2023, the Scholtes & Janssens Piano Duo, will make a concert tour, visiting ten hospitals throughout the Netherlands:  the  'Give Heart' concerts. The duo wants to give a present through their musical performance to the employees of the hospitals as a thank you for their tremendous efforts in helping and supporting thousands of patients in the past corona years. During this concert you will listen to the energetic Sonata in B-flat by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the compelling Fantasy in F by Franz Schubert and the fairytale-like "Pas d'action" from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty. A program through which you can dream away and unwind. This tour is funded by the Fonds Podiumkunsten and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.

Rave reviews for Scholtes & Janssens' new cd by international press

Scholtes & Janssens' new CD is now being praised by the international press. BBC Music Magazine and Music Web International, among others, wrote rave reviews about the duo's new recording.

BBC Music Magazine wrote 'They breathe together, agree on relative dynamics and tonal color and understand the balance of the textures.' and awarded the CD with no less than 4 **** stars. Read the full review here.

Music Web International compared the recording with the legendary CD by Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, also with Mozart and Schubert:

'Given my affection for that Murray Perahia / Radu Lupu recording of these great works by Mozart and Schubert, I have been pleasantly surprised by how soon I was sold on these performances by Piano Duo Scholtes & Janssens. These recordings can certainly live side by side in any collection, and I have a feeling the newer version might easily end up getting more airplay.'

"If you listen to these two young people play music, you think that everything in the world will be all right" - Menachem Pressler, Beaux Arts Trio 

Lestari Scholtes (1984) and Gwylim Janssens (1985) are currently recognized as one the most promising piano duos of their generation, and leading piano duo from the Netherlands. Their 2009 Carnegie Hall debut, as part of the IBLA Grand Prize winners USA tour, was praised as ‘it could well have been 25 or 30 fingers, so big and well integrated was the sound. Terrific duo in top form'. The duo performed in numerous countries on 5 continents and is well known for their brilliant sound and marvelous technical skills, presenting very intense and energetic performances. They are studying in Hanover with the Silver-Garburg Piano Duo.
