I have always wanted to come to a piano concert for ages. And last night it’s accomplished. Along with some friends from Couchsurfing I was succeeded to come to Erasmus Huis the Dutch Cultural Center located in South of Jakarta.
Erasmus Huis is known as Dutch Cultural Center. It’s a place for musical programs and exhibitions. Located in the heart of the city, Erasmus Huis is also a place for Indonesian artist and performers showing their latest signature art. Most of the event in Erasmus Huis are free of charge and so was the concert last night. It’s free and no reservation needed. We just need to come 30 Minutes before the show. It was Thomas Beijer concert, a very talented pianist and composer from Holland. He opened the concert with a very beautiful Music from Franz Schubert.

Thomas was born in Netherlands and took his musical study at The Conservatory of Amsterdam. By winning the prestigious Young Pianist Foundation National Piano Competition in 2007, this tall and good looking pianist positioned him self at the peak of new generation of pianists in his country. Thomas has been doing his recital since he was ten years old. He has been doing it in all over Europe and Asia. Thomas has a little Indonesian blood. His Grand Mother was from Bandung, West Java. It was his 3rd times in Indonesia and it always a pleasure for him to be back to his ancestor country.
Thomas Beijer was not performs alone last night, he was accompanied by Indonesian most skillful violist, Amadeus Giovani Biga. Their Music Blows me to a fancy ambiance. I feels like being in a royals wedding dinner, only this time no food and drink is allowed, no royals and no wedding, so basically it was just about the music. music and only music...
It was so much fun indeed. It really gives me a good experience in terms of listening to classical music which i thoughts gonna be boring.
