Jankobus Seunnenga & Dick Vestdijk: Fabels met Kleurkrijt

Jankobus Seunnenga & Dick Vestdijk: Fabels met Kleurkrijt
Tribute to Simon Vestdijk, the most famous Harlinger ever

Eighty years after the publication of the collection of poetry entitled ‘Fabels met keurkrijt’ (Fables with pastels), Jankobus Seunnenga has taken fifteen poems by Simon Vestdijk and poured them into a musical mould. Together with Dick Vestdijk (indeed the son of), Seunnenga has created a moving performance of the masterpieces of one of the most important Dutch writers of the twentieth century. The musical rendering gives a lively twist to the poems, already so very colourful. It’s time to give the most famous Harlinger the tribute he deserves, so let your imagination run riot during this adventurous performance.

"Seunnenga constantly bounces back and forth between gravitas and caprice in inimitable fashion." - Friesch Dagblad
