Hello Darkness

27 October 2023, 9:30pm - 10:30pm

What to expect Olivia Vermeulen’s and Jan Philip Schulze’s 2021 recital, ‘Dirty Minds’, was a thrilling masterclass in programming and performance. We welcome them back for a live performance of their fascinating 2022 album Hello Darkness, an evening that promises ‘endless listening pleasure’ (De Volkskrank). With music spanning styles and centuries, the recital is connected by running threads of melancholia, murderous lust, comfort, hope and plenty of black humour.

The Artists Olivia Vermeulen’s singing is ‘so wonderfully luminous and captivating that no listener will ever forget it’ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Jan Philip Schulze is one of today’s most exciting and versatile pianists, who works around the globe with leading singers.
