"The role play between this duo is a conversation to be matched: she the activist, he the lyricist.”– De Standaard


Jolente de Maeyer, violin, and Nikolaas Kende, piano, are internationally renowned artists, both as soloists and as a duo, and they are coming as part of a very limited U.S. tour, so we are fortunate to have them! Jolente studied with Yehudi Menuhin and at the Royal College of Music in London, and she is the recipient of awards from the Jong Tenuto Competition, the Charles de Beriot Competition, the Cardona International Competition, and the Benjamin Britten International Violin Competition. Nikolaas studied at the Antwerp Conservatory and at the Amsterdam Conservatory and is a prize winner of several competitions, including the Antwerp Cantabile Competition, the Axiom Classics Competition, and the Royal Flemish Young Soloists Competition. Jolente and Nikolaas (also husband and wife) formed as a duo in 2003 and, in 2016, released their first album of music by Beethoven, Shostakovich, and Pärt.  They will perform a program titled An Evening in Vienna, which includes Beethoven’s Sonata No. 9 in A Major, Op. 47, “Kreutzer”; Schubert’s Sonata in A Major, D. 574, “Grand Duo”; and Mendelssohn’s Sonata in F minor, Op. 4.
