BPA Wraps Up 2012-13 Season with Violin, Piano Duo April 14
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 • Posted April 5, 2013

When Blanco Performing Arts organized in 2010 to present stellar musical performances in the Hill Country, we could not have guessed that we would be hosting true international talent of such quality as Jolente de Maeyer and Nikolaas Kende as the final performers for the 2012-13 season.

Sunday afternoon, April 14, at 3:00 in the Uptown Blanco Ballroom, this violin and piano duo will present music of composers from their native Belgian-French tradition including Debussy, Poulenc, Mortelmans, and Franck.

Jolente is the winner in the Charles de Beriot competition in Brussels and the youngest-ever laureate of the Jong Tenuto Competition. She was semi-finalist in the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition, one of the most prestigious international competitions.

Nikolaas began winning competitions at an early age and often gives concerts in famous halls and festivals in Belgium, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Portugal, Italy, Austria and Spain. His recital in California for the Philip Lorenz Memorial Keyboard Concert in 2009 was proclaimed a success, with technical and interpretative ability deserving highest praise.
