Boundless musical fairy tales full of enigma 

Music evokes the most beautiful and exotic vistas. The sophisticated British conductor Duncan Ward builds bridges between the South Netherlands Philharmonic and cultures from all over the world. Between Debussy’s fairylike fantasies and the secretive Enigma Variations that made its creator Edward Elgar world famous, Ward guides us toward his beloved India, the land of boundless musical fairy tales, with its radically different understanding of rhythm and melody. 

In Ward’s very own Fumes, an Indian inspiration is immediately noticeable. Also, he conducts the spectacular Dutch première of Yaadum Uuree, by Finnish composer Eero Hämeenniemi. An entrancing symphonic homage to magical India. With an unforgettable supporting role by the Indian singer Bombay Jayashri, who became world famous with her performance for the prize-winning movie Life of Pi. 

To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
