About the Performance

Tosca Opdam's Weill Recital Hall Debut features the world premiere of Robin de Raaff’s North Atlantic Light , commissioned by and dedicated to Opdam and inspired by Willem de Kooning’s 1977 painting of the same name. Accompanied by pianist Victor Stanislavsky, she will also perform J.S. Bach’s Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord in E major, BWV 1016; selections from Korngold’s "Much Ado About Nothing" Suite; Debussy’s Violin Sonata; and Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata No. 2 in D major, Op. 94bis.


About Tosca Opdam

Tosca Opdam won First Prize in the 2011 Oskar Back Violin Competition. She subsequently performed at the Royal Concertgebouw and returned for a sold-out debut recital and a performance in honor of the re-opening of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Her 2015 performance as part of the Liberation Day Concert on the Amstel River, with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima in attendance, was broadcast live on Dutch national television.

Opdam designs programs that connect music to painting, dance, and other art forms. In 2017 the Toscata Foundation was established in Tosca Opdam’s name with the aim of promoting classical music worldwide through education, violin pedagogy, collaborations with other artistic disciplines, and the championing and commissioning of contemporary composers for performance in the Netherlands and beyond. She received her master of music degree from The Juilliard School and her bachelor of music degree from the Manhattan School of Music.
