We can say with certainty about Quirine Viersen that she is one of the best cellists in the Netherlands! Viersen has won prizes at various international competitions, including the 1991 International Cello Competition in Helsinki. In 1994 she was the first Dutch person to win a prize at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition. In the same year, Quirine received the Dutch Music Prize. Since then, she has become an integral part of the top of the Dutch music world.
On the third evening of Klassiek goes Underground, Viersen will play works for solo cello by Johann Sebastian Bach, music close to her heart. She has already recorded Bach's complete cello suites on CD twice. Quirine: "For me, Bach is an endless journey of discovery with new insights and vistas, and it always brings me inwardly in balance through his great architectural way of composing."
