In December, during a lockdown period, the Residentie Orkest invited Lidy Blijdorp to perform two compositions for cello and orchestra in a streaming concert. The performance was recorded in The Hague.
During the Elegy to Anner Bylsma Lidy Blijdorp performed the Elegy by Joseph Suk with Vera Beths, Dirk Luijmes, Astrid Haring and the Ragazze quartet.
During this concert Lidy also played the Elegy by Franz Listz and a Boccherini concert.
The Cello Biennale took place online this year – with only Dutch players. Lidy Blijdorp played the opening with Thin Air by Calliope Tsoupaki. She also played the premiere of a new concert by Alexandre Kordzaia with the Asko Schönberg.
In April and May there were several streaming concerts:
From De Doelen, from the Concertgebouw, from the Noorderkerk and from the Posthoornkerk.
They can be viewed on Youtube now.
