Music in corona time

In these times of corona by way of his music pianist Marnix van de Poll contributes to inspiration, comfort, connection, creativity and all those things that we so badly need now. Being human means being in contact with other people and that is just as difficult with social distancing.

A good head start every working day

In May 2020 Pianist Marnix van de Poll gave 11 concerts in 2,5 weeks time live from Simeon ten Holt’s house. The concerts took place each working day Monday – Friday in the morning between 08:45 and 09:00.

The concerts were meant to be listened at as a daily ritual. Marnix played each day the same programme. Bach, Free Impro, Simeon ten Holt. Of course, the free impro was created in the moment inspired by the different feel of each day.

A daily ritual as a mindful medicine to start your day in a good way.
