The Ricciotti orchestra celebrates it's 51-years anniversary this summer, hurray! The golden anniversary in 2020 will be celebrated – according to Ricciotti-tradition – a year later with the release of the brandnew video ‘Mensch, durf te leven!’ and a festive summertour.
Video Mensch, durf te leven
To kick off the anniversary we recorded a new video Mensch, durf te leven with singer Henk Kraaijeveld in a typical Ricciotti-arrangement. The new videoclip shows archive photos of 51 years Ricciotti history. “A present for all our fans who had to miss the Ricciotti for such a long time during covid time and a nice start for our Golden Anniversarytour”, explains Hannah Soepenberg. “We thought this is a fitting video now after life in the Netherlands is getting more freedom after the lockdown. Also the lyrics are truely Ricciotti style.”
Ricciotti’s Golden Anniversarytour
Between 11 and 21 August the Ricciotti will tour the whole of the Netherlands with their Golden Anniversarytour. Violin player and composer and old Ricciotti's concertmaster Tim Kliphuis will join them to celebrate this special occassion. Festive music and compositions that were written especially for the Ricciotti by Willem Breuker, Jurriaan Andriessen and Chiel Meijering in the past will be perfomed. Also new work from Tim Kliphuis, Leonard Evers and Micha Hamel. The first locations are announced and tickets can be reserved. More information see here.
