Mozart in the afternoon in the park

Musical brilliance on Saturday afternoon, played by an extraordinary international trio: experience the violin princess Noa Wildschut, the virtuoso cellist Anton Spronk and the excellent violist Takehiro Konoe, who, despite their youth, present classical masterpieces at the highest level. In addition to Mozart, compositions by Maddalena Lombardini Sirmen and Johann S. Bach will be performed. All three are already award-winning artists.

Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut is only 23 years old, but has already made her mark on the international classical music scene. Her playing is sparkling and sparkling like a sparkler. With empathy and humor, Noa is a bubbling source of immediate musicality. “Noa Wildschut is undoubtedly a musical hope of her generation,” says Anne-Sophie Mutter.

At the age of six she played live on Dutch television as part of the “Kinderprinsengrachtconcert 2007” in Amsterdam, and a year later she made her debut in the main hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. She has been an exclusive artist with Warner Classics since September 2016. Over the years, Noa has built up a considerable reputation and is regularly invited to festivals, recitals and solo concerts with orchestras at home and abroad. She performs with inspiring musicians such as Janine Jansen, Menahem Pressler, Igor Levit and many more. She also works with famous orchestras such as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest, Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest, Kremerata Baltica, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Gürzenich Orchester Köln, Orquestra Sinfônica de João Pessoa in Brazil, Orquesta Sinfoniónica de Guayaquil in Ecuador etc.

The Dutch-Swiss cellist Anton Spronk, born in 1994, began cello lessons at the age of four and continued his training in Amsterdam at the age of twelve. He graduated from the University of the Arts in Zurich and studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin. At the age of 19, he won first prize at the Cello Biennale in Amsterdam. Since then he has received numerous other awards and has been principal cellist in the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra since March.

Anton Spronk has performed in many major international concert halls in Europe, the USA and Asia, including the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Tonhalle Zurich, the Seoul Arts Center and the Berlin Philharmonie. He is recognized both as a chamber musician and as a soloist and has played with major orchestras such as the Munich Chamber Orchestra, The Hague Philharmonic, the South Netherlands Philharmonic and the RAI National Symphony Orchestra. He is also the artistic director of the Eggenfelden Classical Festival, which he founded in 2016 together with violinist Larissa Cidlinsky.

Third in the Open Air line-up is the Japanese-Dutch violist Takehiro Konoe, born in 1997. He is currently a student of Nobuko Imai and Francien Schatborn at the conservatory in Amsterdam. He began playing the violin with Professor Coosje Wijzenbeek at the age of four and switched to the viola at the age of 18. In 2003 he moved from the conservatory in The Hague to the Amsterdam Conservatory, where he is currently studying at the Sweelinck Academy for highly gifted students. He is also a scholarship holder of the International Music Academy in the Principality of Liechtenstein and regularly takes part in the intensive weeks there.

Takehiro won third prize in the ARD International Music Competition in 2023 and 2018. He is the first prize winner of the Osaka Chamber Music Competition 2023 with the Capybara Piano Quartet, the Oscar Nedbal Competition 2022, the Johannes Brahms Competition 2020 and the National Viola Competition 2017 in Amsterdam. He is also a finalist at the 4th International Viola Competition in Tokyo 2018, where he was awarded the Suntory Foundation for Arts Prize.

Takehiro has performed many of his concerts with his twin sister Mayu, who is both a violinist and a violist. They have often performed together, including at the Kinder Prinsengracht Concert in Amsterdam, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Musica Classica International Music Festival in Joao Pessoa, Brazil. Takehiro and Mayu won first prize at the Prinses Christina Competition in 2015, where they subsequently performed Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with the Hague Philharmonic Orchestra and the Sinfonietta Rotterdam.
