Cold winds swept over the IJssel River in November 1813, when Bashkir troops pitched their bivouac at the river shores, where they built a Ship-bridge to cross this major obstacle in their pursuit of Napoleon. Turbulent times – inspiration for Beethoven to write Sonates, reflecting the emotions of those days.

November 1813 – November 2020

November 1813 – cold winds swept over the IJssel River in November 1813, when the 1rst Regiment of Bashkir troops pitched their bivouac in the village of Wijhe. The Low Countries were suffering under French rule. A month earlier, Napoleon was defeated at Leipzig and the Allied forces chased the French back to France. In their pursuit of Napoleon, the IJssel River proved to be a major obstacle. By building a Ship-bridge between both river shores, these courageous horsemen, who had made their way from the foothills of the Ural mountains, could continue their victorious campaign for the liberation of the Netherlands from French occupation.

Poets and composers translated the tensions of these days into texts and melodies. Turbulent times, that inspired also Beethoven to write Sonates, reflecting the emotions of those days.

Locatie

Huize Kolthoorn

De Gelderse villa Huize Kolthoorn in de gelijknamige buurtschap, werd in 1880 op een steenworp van de grote en veel oudere boerderij van het landgoed gebouwd. Indertijd omvatte het landgoed - gelegen tussen de IJssel en de Noord-Veluwe - eveneens het aanpalende bos- en heidegebied (nu Landgoed Boshoven). Het landgoed werd in 1899 aangekocht door de gevierde kunstschilder Jan L. Kleintjes (1872-1955) en zijn vrouw Hedwig Kleintjes - van Osselen (1871-1936), dochter van de bekende kinderboekenschrijfster, Berta van Osselen - van Delden (1847-1936) en zelf ook kunstenares. Kolthoorn groeide in die jaren uit tot een centrum waar kunstenaars van diverse pluimage elkaar ontmoetten.
