This year Leeuwarden, the capital of Friesland, the Netherlands is the European Capital of Culture. Nico de Villiers, pianist and Richard Hageman scholar, and Asing Walthaus, journalist at the Leeuwarder Courant, will present a lecture on an orchestral overture ‘In A Nutshell’ by the Leeuwarden-born American Oscar-winner composer Richard Hageman in his birth place as part of the CityProms Festival. This currently unpublished overture has had only two performances in 1945 by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra with Richard Hageman conducting. On 28 June 2018 the North Netherlands Orchestra will perform this overture as a part of the CityProms Festival Gala Concert.
