Text on the website www.brabantsorkest.nl:From 21.00 the complete orchestra under the direction of the Australian conductor Nicholas Milton will occupy the specially equipped stage for a classical concert without equal .With that the Brabants Orkest is visiting the public to show that what normally sounds within the walls of the regular concerthalls in Eindhoven, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Breda and Tilburg is more than ordinary worthwhile.The free accessible open-air concert near the Witte Dame (White Lady), the former lightbulb-factory of Philips, starts not without reason on a time that the twilight sets in. A spectacular lightshowunites this important export-product of Eindhoven with the music.The famous bandoneonplayer Carel Kraayenhof performs as solist in the Latin-American tinted programme fit for the whole family.Latin-American classics.With the presence of Carel Kraayenhof, who was a guest of the Brabants Orkest several times before, the work of tango-king Astor Piazzolla on the programme is evident.Kraayenhof lets his bandoneon sing in classics as Milonga del Angel, Libertango and of course the worldfamousAdios Nonino, which drew the much discussed tear from Maxima.The Brabants Orkest presents itself furthermore in this unusual setting as a young and especially swinging orchestra with a.o. the Cuban Overture of George Gershwin and Ravel’s exciting Bolero as a climax. For the stirring spectacle of this piece next to the orchestra the Australian conductor Norman Milton is a guarantee. He passes for the most dynamic Australian conductor of this moment and he gets more and more international recognition. Milton meanwhile has a reputation as Mahler-conductor, but he also is a first-class hit in his homeland in the Latin-American and the lighter repertoir.
Don’t forget to make reservations for the theatre-concerts of Compassion. This show with the Argentinian guest-singer Omar Mollo, will be played in The Netherlands only 11 times.
By the name Classic Light the Brabants Orkest will give an open-air concert on Friday 10 September on the Lichtplein (Light Plaza) in Eindhoven.
