Marietta Petkova and Carel Kraayenhof, two masters on their instruments, have found each other in the program the Hand of the Bear.
With folk music as their underlying theme, they perform works by Bach, Scarlatti, Schubert and Argentine masters such as Piazzolla and Garçia, among others.

The compositions are interspersed with personal stories, such as the one about both of them being fascinated by the legendary classical pianist Svyatoslav Richter, whose giant hand once encompassed Marietta's tiny child's hand and in whose honor Carel wrote a poetic piano work, which he later renamed Ruka na Metchka (Hand of the Bear) especially for Marietta. A unique summit meeting between piano and bandoneon.

The musicians in the Boundless series like to color outside the lines. What cross-connections can be made between classical music and other styles and disciplines? For example, Frommerman, together with actor, writer and musician Eric Corton, brings A Lonely Christmas in December, Ragazze Quartet in Lamento explores mourning in different continents and through the centuries. Bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof and pianist Marietta Petkova find each other in an autobiographical program titled The Hand of the Bear.
This series is a collaboration between Flint and September Me, music festival for discoverers. Artistic director Ragazze Quartet put together the program.

Marietta Petkova is a celebrated pianist whose exceptional quality was quickly recognized in the Netherlands and far beyond. Her interpretation of Rachmaninov's Études-Tableaux is legendary. Petkova is currently enjoying a flourishing career as a soloist and chamber musician. She is known for her authenticity and versatility.

Carel Kraayenhof, bandoneonist, composer and arranger, is the most fascinating and versatile bandoneon player of our time. Unique in his playing style due to his great knowledge of Argentine tango, he touches every audience worldwide with his enchanting and integer playing. Due to his collaboration with Astor Piazzolla (†1992) in 1987 during the Broadway show Tango Apasionado and his long-standing personal relationship with the beloved tango maestro Osvaldo Pugliese (†1995), he developed into one of the most beloved bandoneonists of today.
