“Farahani enters right into the hearts of the audience, both singing and speaking”

(Brechtje Zwaneveld, NRC Handelsblad)

Debut CD: WOMAN - The making of..


‘Woman - the making of...’ is a unique fusion of art forms, made by contemporary creators and performers, on the timeless theme of ‘the woman’ from a modern perspective.

Soprano Lilian Farahani and pianist Maurice Lammerts van Bueren combine their love for the music of American composer Jake Heggie (1961), with their passion for photography. To interpret Heggies compositions ‘Eve-Song’ and ‘At the Statue of Venus’ in both an auditory and visual way, the album will be released with a corresponding photobooklet.

Please check back soon to order the album online and listen to some samples

On the proceeding evening to the release, June 7th, Lilian will be singing live on NPO Radio 4, as well as having an interview about this project. (Dutch)

The official release will take place on June 8th 2019 in Amsterdam at the the NedPhO-Koepel. You can order tickets here.
