'Scandal concert'

Igor Stravinsky's ballet music for 'Le Sacre du Printemps' shook the music world to its foundations in 1913. After a famous 'scandal concert' in Paris, the groundbreaking work quickly conquered the concert stages. The brutal sound collages, pounding, angular rhythms and sharp contrasts were not only ultra-modern but also proved to be incredibly catchy. The 'Sacre' resonates with every generation of music lovers.

Gustavo Gimeno

Gustavo Gimeno, who started as a percussionist with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, has been a highly regarded conductor for years at the helm of the orchestras of Luxembourg and Toronto. In the latter city, Gimeno has become extensively acquainted with Canadian music life in recent years. He brings with him two exciting compositions, which are having their Dutch premiere: Samy Moussa's 'Second Symphony' from 2022 and a work by Kelly-Marie Murphy, which - contrary to the title suggests - is inspired by the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould.
