The recital gives a good impression of the Fresian song repertoire from the early 20th century to the present day. The première was on Sunday 4 November 2012 in De Bloemerstee in Goingarijp. On 17 november 2012 part of the repertoir e was performed as a musical intermezzo during the annual Fedde Schurer-lectures in Tresoar in Leeuwarden.
What makes the programme extra special is that it contains a number of songs by Wanda’s great grandmother: Aafke Komter-Kuipers. She lived from 1876 to 1943 and was a musicologist, pianist and composer. In 2011 a biography came out under the auspices of the Fryske Akademy describing the life and work of this talented Fresian woman. The programme also includes songs by Paulus Folkertsma, Tjeerd Nielsen, Bernard Smilde, Hindrik van der Meer and Rixt van der Kooy to poens by Fedde Schurer, Ype Poortinga and others.
