Watch the video to see the hand of Hennie van der Vegt painting one of his famous blossoms. Esther used the painting for the cover of her latest CD which actually is an EP. It contains two pieces, Sakura, Theme and variations by Yuquijiro Yocoh and Bellefleur by Pieter van der Staak. I think she plays both of them beautifully. You can order the CD at her website. Of course it’s available for download as well.

Esther, you are a poëtic player, just listened a fragment of your newest cd. I l hear and feel the intention in the beautifull tones and subtile colours you make and the way you incorparate silence as well as a parameter. Your playing is a universe in itself and you play the inside out, chapeau!.
