Welcome to our new website, and thank you for visiting.
We are Plaisir d’amour: violinist Jos Koning and harpist Anouk Platenkamp.
The desire to create Duo Plaisir d’amour started during a rehearsal for a different Celtic folk band. For Anouk is was the rehearsal before her final concert with the band, while for Jos it was his try-out rehearsal with them. One rehearsal was enough to know they wanted to play together and so, shortly after, Plaisir d’amour was started.
They love playing traditional music from Europe, and Jos always has enough inspiration to write some original tunes as well. Recently they’ve added singing to their repertoire.
