Rachmaninov - The Bells
Rachmaninoff himself was quite enamoured with this piece. Alas, because of its imposing orchestration, it is only performed very rarely. But now, for this special occasion, the South Netherlands Philharmonic get a helping hand from the Yekaterinburg Philharmonic Choir. A true specialist, touring Europe with this masterpiece by Rachmaninoff. Also, we are privileged to host the city carillonneur of Maastricht, Frank Steijns, and a great variety of top vocalists. The composer Olga Victorova will write a brand-new piece inspired by the wondrous sounds and the unifying strengths the carillon has in both Russia and the Netherlands. Let the bells ring, for this is a festive final chord you simply cannot miss.
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!
