Coraline Groen in Brittens Vioolconcert

Violinist Coraline Groen, young artist in residence during this year's Muziekzomer Gelderland edition, soon new she wanted to play Benjamin Britten's violin concerto with the NJO. It is a dreamy work full of emotions, sudden changes in atmosphere, from combative to intense sorrow, that she brings to the stage with the orchestra she has played in multiple times.

During the Muziekzomer, Coraline also plays this piece in 'Britten from within'. A concert in which she shares with the audience her experience on stage as a orchestra violinist in the Concertgebouworkest: to be in the midst of the music.
