Daniel was invited to appear on Dutch TV’s Podium Witteman programme last night, as part of their ‘Melody of the Month’ feature. One of Daniel’s choices was ‘Marietta’s Song’ by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Dutch speakers can hear him talking to presenter Paul Witteman from about 14′ 8″ into the programme here.

In this film, Daniel takes us to beautiful Twente in the Netherlands, and to the ancient village of Stift where he grew up. We go inside the intimate 14th-century village church where many of the festival's concerts are held and on a tour of this beautiful location. As Daniel explains, the theme for Stift Festival 2018 - 26th August to 2nd September - is 'Intimate Letters'. There is a parallel theme of 'Nature'. Not to be missed!

Having recently returned from Dublin, where he performed the "Eight Seasons" at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in their international Visiting Artist Series, Daniel Rowland is looking forward to working with Orchestre de Picardie in the coming week. He gives three performances of the Glass Concerto:
Following several highly successful appearances with the City of Joensuu Orchestra over recent years, performing concerto no. 2 by Philip Glass, and the Vivaldi/Piazzolla “Eight Seasons” with conductor Arie van Beek, the orchestra has invited him to return – this time to perform Lindberg’s Violin Concerto no. 1. He has just arrived there for rehearsals, and the concert takes place on Thursday evening. The conductor is Jurjen Hempel.
Rowland - pictured above with the Guarneri del Gesu - says:
"I am delighted, excited and honoured to be given this beautiful violin on loan from the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation. It's the 1736 'ex-Rode' Guarneri del Gesu. It's a violin with an incredible history and I'm hugely looking forward to discovering all the secrets hidden within! My big thanks to Frits Schutte and to all at the foundation for making this possible!"
