Phoenix Reborn
"A response to the corona crisis and, by extension, the current state of the world," is how Tim Kliphuis characterises Phoenix Reborn, the triple concerto for violin, cello, piano and orchestra that he wrote for the NTR Saturday Matinee. "How should we deal with the world and the arts in order to prevent such a crisis and other disasters in the future, was the underlying question for me. The climate, in particular, plays a major role in this, because our future is completely dependent on it. Man must find a way to have a lesser impact on the earth.
