Jan Terlouw introduced the previous editions of ZOOM! and this year he will also connect music and society in style. The other guest is international star pianist Nino Gvetadze. She will perform a selection from Claude Debussy’s Préludes for piano. After this the Ruysdael Quartet will take over with Ravel’s famous String Quartet. This French evening will close with the great Piano Quintet by the Dutch-Belgian-French composer César Franck, which achieves almost symphonic proportions.
