Gastheer is de Australian and New Zealand Viola Society (ANZVS), en er is een mooi programma in elkaar getimmerd, met namen als Donald Maurice, Anna Serova en Brett Dean als hoofdartiesten.

De Nederlandse inbreng bij dit congres is iets kleiner van omvang dan in voorgaande jaren, vanwege de grote reisafstand en -kosten:

Luca Altdorfer (Studente, Groningen): Lezing “Composed to the Soul: Viola da gamba music of Carl Friedrich Abel on the viola“.

Elisabeth Smalt (Kamermusicus, Amsterdam): Medewerking aan recital met composities van Frank Denyer, Morton Feldman, Yannis Kyriakides, en Kevin Volans

Kristofer G. Skaug (DVS bestuurslid, Delft): Lezing “Viola resources, archives and database worldwide: how to locate and preserve our repertoire“, samen met Myrna Layton (Primrose International Viola Archive) en Daphne Gerling (American Viola Society).

Daarnaast hoopt de gedelegeerde van DVS in Wellington de definitieve go-ahead te verkrijgen van het IVS bestuur voor het IVC in Rotterdam, 2018.

Our host is the Australian and New Zealand Viola Society (ANZVS), they have put together a good programme with names like Donald Maurice, Anna Serova and Brett Dean as featured artists.

The Dutch contribution to this congress is somewhat more modest than in previous years, due to the large travel distance and associated costs:

Luca Altdorfer (Student, Groningen): Lecture “Composed to the Soul: Viola da gamba music of Carl Friedrich Abel on the viola“.

Elisabeth Smalt (Chamber musician, Amsterdam): Contribution to a recital with compositions by Frank Denyer, Morton Feldman, Yannis Kyriakides, and Kevin Volans

Kristofer G. Skaug (DVS board member, Delft): Lecture “Viola resources, archives and database worldwide: how to locate and preserve our repertoire“, together with Myrna Layton (Primrose International Viola Archive) en Daphne Gerling (American Viola Society).

Furthermore the DVS delegate to Wellington hopes to obtain the definitive go-ahead from the IVS Board, to proceed with the IVC in Rotterdam, 2018.
