Dutch conductor and pianist Raymond Janssen is initiator and founder of Cadenza Europaean Art Productions. Cadenza Europeaan Art Productions seeks to establish cooperation between East European musicians and performance venues in West European countries, based on the belief that Eastern Europe harbours enormous musical potential, born from a rich tradition. Partly because of the isolation of these countries, this cultural heritage has been able to survive and maintain its originality. Through Cadenza, Raymond Janssen wants to present this tradition, passed down through the ages, to West European countries.
Conductor, concert pianist and accompanist, Raymond Janssen is a welcome guest at European festivals and concerts. As accompanist of Eliana Cotrubas, Gail Gilmore, Eugene Holmes and Janice Baird, he performed on many major stages around the world, e.g., at the Schleswig Holstein Festival, Ljubliana Music Festival, in Reykjavik and at the Teatro Filharmonico in Verona. He accompanied Gail Gilmore at, amongst others, the Teatro Amazonas in Manaus (Brazil), followed by concerts in Rio de Janeiro.
In Germany, he performed as a guest in, for instance, the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt, the Meistersingerhalle in Nürnberg, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Kaisersaal in Würzburg, as well as in München and Hannover. He played in many concerts for the Hessische Rundfunk, Westdeutsche Rundfunk and Südwestrundfunk. In the Netherlands, he was a guest at the AVRO, playing, e.g., the Schumann sonata in g minor. He made a documentary for Romanian television about the 2008 concert tour with the Banatul Timisoara State Philharmonic in the Netherlands (Concertgebouw Amsterdam), Belgium and Germany, playing Verdi’s Requiem, Carmina Burana,Lord of the Rings, Mozart requiem and Dvorak’s 9th symphony.
