World premiere ‘ Song for Life and Death by Matthijs Koene (panpipes)

Calliope Tsoupaki wrote the piece Song for Life and Death at the occasion of 70 years human rights. According to Calliope this is a homage to the people who fought for human rights. “It is a song for the victims, for the heroes and for the ones who were left behind and think of them. A song for all of us. I chose the panpipes, because I know how beautiful and moving the sound of Matthijs Koene is. I wrote Song for Life and Death especially for him.”

This piece was premiered at the Dom, Utrecht, the Netherlands and was performed the same day in the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. The radio premiere was at Opium, where Matthijs played Song for Life and Death live.
