nuts garden and nuts huis
In recent years, the Nutshuis garden has proved to be the ultimate setting for a relaxing afternoon listening to impassioned concerts. A great location in the middle of the city, but without all the noise,... in short: ideal for a Saturday afternoon concert ;)
No nature related garden concert without the work of Claude Debussy (1862 – 1918). Inspired by the French landscape this world famous composer wrote in his last years a beautiful sonate for a uniquely created treesome: harp, flute, and viola. In turn, the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu (1930 – 1996) was inspired by Debussy, and created his own trio in response to an Emily Dickenson poem about rain and wind. The honors go to Doriene Marselje (harp), Tirza Leenman (flute), Zachary Hamilton (viola) to perform these two much praised pieces in the Nutsgarden on Saturday July 13.

Het Nutshuis is an independent podium for art, culture and society. It is based in a former bank building, which served as the head office of the Nutsspaarbank te ’s-Gravenhage from 1921 to 1992. Het Nutshuis is continuing the ideology of Het Nut, a 19th-century citizens’ initiative that supported the ’development and elevation of the common man’.
New European Ensemble is supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten (from 2017) and the city of The Hague
