Foyer Matinee: Rembrandt Frerichs (piano)
Jazz, classical and the Middel East
Rembrandt Frerichs (1977) is a pianist with a broad perspective. He is familiar with the American jazz tradition, but wants to avoid the well-trodden path. His curiosity and knowledge of the art music of different parts of the world urge his music to develop constantly. The way Rembrandt searches for a new musical idiom makes him an extraordinary musician, pushing the limits of boundaries made up by music industry, like classical music, improvised music and worldmusic.
“One of the highlights of the North Sea Jazz Festival” (Jazzmagazine about Rembrandt Frerichs)
The vibrant ‘aperitif concerts’ of Foyer Matinee take place every third Sunday of the month in the Handelsbeurs foyer. A glass of champagne or fruit juice in hand, whole families of music lovers gather around passionate performers of jazz, classical and world music.
New: Foyer Soirée
On some Monday evenings, the foyer of Handelsbeurs transformes in a cosy music club.
Each Foyer Soirée a musician or band introduces a new project. Listen to young Ghentian talent or established artists and begin your week with a bang.
