Crossroads - Introduction

After several concerts focusing on earlier local repertoire - recently the final concert of the Belgian Music Days by our regular guest ensemble the Royal Music Band of the Guides - our students from the Orchestral Instruments Department will be working on an exclusive British programme, and this under the direction of the renowned British conductor Douglas Bostock. He presents a repertoire of works by contemporary British composers as well as Vaughan Williams and Grainger, well-known historical British composers whose compositions often expressed a kind of yearning for the folk England of yesteryear.

Thus, this concert groups together various intersections, between 20th and 21st centuries, between modernism and nostalgia, between Brussels and British.

With thanks for the text to Matthias Heyman, Research Department KCB.
