On Saturday, 29th April, mezzo-soprano Emma Brown and pianist Isolde Troost gave a recital of Grieg’s Haugtussa and Liszt’s Consolations in the unusual setting of a bookshop. Donner Bookshop in Rotterdam, est. 1912, is one of the largest bookshops in the Netherlands. They regularly have readings, lectures, and presentations.

Emma and Isolde first performed this programme in the Hooglandse Kerk last March. They have already been invited to give further performances in South Holland.
