IVO JANSSEN
At Doors 4, Ivo Janssen's virtuoso piano-playing was the soul of speed – the theme of that year's model. This year, he embodies lightness, performing Soloduiveldans II (Solo Devil's Dance II, 1986) by Dutch minimalist composer Simeon ten Holt. Ivo Janssen studied at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam and made his début at the Concertgebouw in 1988. He performs regularly in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Australia and the USA. In 1994, he embarked on an ambitious series of concerts to perform and record the complete keyboard works of Bach. Numbers four and five in the cycle (Inventions and Preludes and Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, Book I), were released earlier this year; Bach's English Suites will follow shortly on Void Classics, Janssen's own record label, which he set up in 1998. His acclaimed 'Toccata!' project combines Bach toccatas with new ones by contemporary Dutch composers such as Louis Andriessen, Michiel Borstlap, Leo Samama and Christina Viola Oorebeek. This year, in addition to touring with Bach's Wohltemperierte Klavier, he is releasing a Debussy CD and live recordings of the work of Simeon ten Holt. The piece he performs for Doors is characteristic of Ten Holt's piano compositions of the 1980s, when he spoke of the instrument as,
"a nebula, a sensation." Conceived as a journey for performer and audience, the piece is a sort of map – with the player choosing the eventual destination.
