Piano concerts

On the concert podium Henk Wieman is like a fish in the water. In an very inspired way he performs his own compositions, accompanied by various ensembles such as the Belgian String Quartet, String Quintet and the Belgian String Orchestra.

Freshness, energy and authenticity are specific features of Henk’s piano concerts.

The compositions of Henk Wieman can be categorized as romantic classic. Some pieces have a cinematic, soundtrack quality.

His concerts are special because of his very personal input. In only a few words he outlines the history of the composition that is to be performed. He connects them with moments from his own life, events that everyone can fill in for themselves. This intimacy makes you part of a rare musical experience.
