    • The highlight of the evening followed before the break : the premiere of BLISS, composed by Douwe Eisenga and commissioned by the Nazomerfestival. The cello octet was extended by four saxophonists. It turned out to be a powerful combination , which - following a proven Eisenga concept - created a beautifully rhythmic spectacle that hit a nerve . The applause that followed was lengthy and exuberant.
