introduction

Early January. The year is still young, it’s dark and cold outside – bubbles are necessary to wave goodbye to 2019. There can be no better way to do so than with a gigantic new year’s concert to celebrate the transition.

This year we call upon a few delicious and energetic French masters for some razzle-dazzle, with their southern rhythms and sultry sounds. Clarinet virtuoso Annelien Van Wauwe treats us to the rarely performed First Clarinet Concerto by Carl Maria von Weber. A perfect match for the classics of the Strauss dynasty and other great masters of the waltz.

programme

Georges Bizet • Carmen: Suite No. 1
Carl Maria von Weber • Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra No
. 1 f minor, op. 73
Charles-Marie Widor • Introduction & Rondo
