Kai Strobel

& Delta Piano Trio

This yearly event is a ‘junior’ version of the International chamber music festival in Schiermonnikoog in October and participation is restricted to a small number of top young musicians from the Netherlands and abroad. The Festival Young Talent is a wonderful opportunity to become acquainted with a new generation of virtuosi. More than forty young musicians come to the island for six days to perform concerts and participate in masterclasses.

The 26-year-old Kai Strobel from Germany won the First Prize in the TROMP International Percussion Competition in Eindhoven - plus the award for the best rendition of a Dutch work. He was already a laureate of the German Jugend Musiziert competition and had won First Prize and the Audience Award at the Percussive Linz International Marimba Competition 2015. In addition, he reached the semi-finals of the international ARD Music Competition at age 22.

In this solo recital Kai performs a selection of the competition repertoire that earned him a spot in the TROMP Finale and that shows his versatile musicianship. His programme ranges from elegantly Bach to virtuosic marimba perfomances, and jazzy vibraphone to 'junk percussion'.
