Concertini at the Brussels Opera House

Cost

€5 charity donation + €10 ticket

 

Charity Event: Concertini 19 April

This month’s concert is dedicated to two English composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) and Edward Benjamen Britten (1913-1976). 

 

The first part of the concert features William’s ‘Along the Field’ (voice and violin) and ‘Ten Blake Songs’ (voice and oboe). The latter were composed for a 1958 documentary film called ‘The Vision of William Blake’, whereby Williams set several of Blake’s poems to music. Williams is best knows for his very wide range of moods, from stormy to impassioned to tranquil, from mysterious to exuberant.

 

The second part of the concert features Britten’s Phantasy-Quartett (oboe and strings) which Britten wrote when he was nineteen and enrolled at the Royal College of Music. Britten was a central figure of 20th-century British music.
