On Thursday 3 April in Theater De Parade in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (start 20:15), Friday 4 April in the Concertzaal in Tilburg (start 20:30), Saturday 5 April in Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven (start 20:15) and Sunday 6 April in the Chassé Theater in Breda (start 15:00) the Brabants Orkest under the direction of conductor Gisèle Ben-Dor will play Ginastera’s Variaciones Concertantes, Piazolla’s Bandoneonconcert and Dvoraks Symphony of the New World. Solist in Piazolla’s stirring Bandoneonconcert is the internationally famous bandoneonplayer Carel Kraayenhof.
The soul of the American country.The Dutch bandoneonplayer Carel Kraayenhof is much more than the man of the Tear of Maxima. The marriage of Willem-Alexander and princess Maxima made him famous by the general public, but long before that he passed for a great musician. That is why the Brabants Orkest presents Carel Kraayenhof as the solist in the Bandoneonconcert of the famous tangoreformer Astor Piazolla. Like no one else Kraayenhof knows how to put forward the Argentinian soul that hides behind the notes in this concert, in which Piazolla presents himself as a serious and great composer.Also the likewise Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera knew how to catch the Argentinian soul. Only where Piazolla used the sound of the city as a source of inspiration, Ginastera turned to the pampas, the Argentinian countryside. In his Variaciones Concertantes it produces exciting music.Especially because it is conducted by Gisèle Ben-Dor, who is still not very well known in the Netherlands. In the United States and in South America the from Uruguay originating conductor is considered an absolute specialist in this repertoire. Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony also is a piece of work to look forward to. Because what will Ben-Dor do with the negroid and the Indian elements, looked at through Czech glasses?More information: www.hetbrabantsorkest.nl
