Duo LeCoultre & VanHees

Violinist Floor le Coultre and guitarist Martin van Hees take you to Fort Island Pampus (Forteiland Pampus in Dutch). The duo shows you a world full of classical and folk music. Dream away with Spanish dances from De Falla, the fiery tangos of Piazzolla and melancholy melodies from Villa Lobos and Händel. LeCoultre & VanHees have been a duo since 2014 and have played at various national and international chamber music festivals. They met at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague where they both excelled in their studies. They found each other in their shared interest in folk music.

Forteiland Pampus

The performance of LeCoultre & VanHees takes place at Forteiland Pampus. The island was built between 1887 and 1895 to protect Amsterdam against attacks coming from the IJ-river. Although battle was the goal of the fortress island, in reality, it was never used during a war. In 1933 the fort was closed. In the hunger winter of 1944, the island was accessible by ice and was plundered by the population. The island fell into disrepair. In 1990 the island was handed over to the Forteiland Pampus Foundation. They have preserved the island and made it the attraction it is today.
