Support the Sporck Foundation

The cultural sector has been severely affected by the pandemic and the accompanying measures. The Sporck Foundation nevertheless remains active: in September 2020 we organized a corona tour along 6 nursing homes in Tilburg and applications for funding a proposed concert in the Lodewijkskerkje in Oisterwijk in November 2021 have been made. (See message elsewhere on this page.) In addition to this we are considering a performance or registration of the piano quintets of Brahms and Sporck, whether or not in combination with the above-mentioned trios and possible works for piano solo. Sporck's oeuvre is far from being mapped out. As you can see there is no lack of programmatic options and a small catch-up after a monotonous corona year is a terrific goal for the Foundation for the near futureā€¦.

Your financial support is more than welcome! Do you recognize the importance of the arts and would you like to support the work of the foundation? Then pay your contribution to NL 96 INGB 000 322 7616, in the name of Stichting Sporck. Thank you!

Corona tour provides moments of happiness

On Saturday September 19, a double-decker bus with the Amsterdam Brass Quintet visited 6 nursing homes in Tilburg and gave half-hour mini concerts.

This fall: The Three French Horn Trios

The Sporck Foundation is planning to organize a unique concert on November 28, 2021 in the Lodewijkskerkje in Oisterwijk with Brahms' famous French horn trio. The starting point is a triptych about the two compositions for French horn, violin and piano written so far, namely by Brahms and Ligeti. Jo Sporck is writing a new work for horn, violin and piano; he is aiming to connect the works by means of compositional parallels and two of the three horn trios will then be shown as (world) premiere on November 28, 2021 in the Lodewijkskerkje in Oisterwijk.
