Bart van de Roer

Blauwe Zaal, Auditorium
Price: Free (Student) Free (Others)

Experience the profound impact of Chopin’s Heroic Polonaise and Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in C sharp as they are masterfully explored during a public masterclass led by renowned pianist Bart van de Roer.

Discover one of TU/e’s best-kept secrets—a community of exceptionally skilled pianists., who study piano arduously besides their study obligations. Many of them are (piano)member of ESMG Quadrivium, the student music association for classical music in Eindhoven. Among them is PhD candidate Xueying Guan, who seeks guidance on enhancing her articulation of the Prelude in C-sharp from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Joining her is Pepijn Verdurmen, a computer science student, aiming to refine his interpretation of Chopin’s formidable Polonaise Opus 53.

Masterclass led by Bart van de Roer from the Storioni Trio
Bart van de Roer, a celebrated member of the Storioni Trio for over 25 years, brings a wealth of experience from his studies at Amsterdam’s Sweelinck Conservatory under Jan Wijn, and mentorship from notable figures like György Sebök, Menahem Pressler, and Eugen Indjic. Currently, he teaches principal study classical piano and chamber music at Codarts Conservatory in Rotterdam.

Each pianist will perform their piece first after which Bart van de Roer will advise them on how to make improvements to their piano playing paying special attention to the musicality of the pieces. Visiting this session is an invaluable opportunity for anyone interested in the nuances of masterful piano performance.
