The magnificent and talented Marie Hallynck will perform the Camille Saint Saëns (1872) interpretation of the Concerto in A minor opus 33 for cello. Many composers, including Shostakovich and Rachmaninoff, have considered this concerto one of the greatest of all cello concertos.
In addition, this brilliant performer also has a surprise in store for us….
Félix Mendelssohn's "Lobgesang Symphony-cantata" is a masterpiece made specially for large choirs. In addition 3 soloists, organ and orchestra appear in this work. Based on Biblical text, this grandiose hymn was composed and premiered in 1840 in Leipzig. This solemn work celebrates the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Gutenberg press. Its current form is a version that has been reworked and refined many times by the composer himself. A work that is reminiscent of the ‘Ode to Joy’ by L. van Beethoven (1824).
