PROGRAMMING - November Music

Quite by coincidence, I fell into organizing concerts. The first one was an anniversary happening for my piano teacher, Claude A. Coppens (who then turned 50), afterwards I conceived of several events around the music of Mauricio Kagel (festivals and individual concerts, with and without my pianistic participation). When I returned from my studied in the US, I had a hard time finding a steady job (as different from the concert tours) due to being ‘overqualified’. Looking around, I was proposed to work for a festival ‘November Music’, established in 1993 to enhance musical cooperation and exchange between Flanders and the Netherlands. To further this cause, I established a Flemish section of this organisation, which I have lead from 1998 to the present. On these pages here, I will put the programs I developed for November Music.
