Turbulent Russian classics

In his Fourth Symphony an emotionally tormented Tchaikovsky expresses his sense of not belonging anywhere: turbulent storms, cutting loneliness, but then – despite everything – a heroic, almost Beethovenian ending. Equally epic is Rachmaninov's nimble-fingered Third Piano Concerto, which is tinged with nostalgia and is much loved for its compelling melodies. After a so-called ‘simple’ opening melody, it soon erupts into virtuoso streams of notes and roaring passion. Perfectly suited to Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort's able hands.

From all over the world, horrified reactions to the war in Ukraine are coming in. Naturally,  the world of culture share this indignation and responds with that wonderful medium that unites rather than divides: (classical) music. Between 25 and 29 March, the Concertgebouw, together with other major Belgian cultural institutions, is organising a series of benefit concerts, the proceeds of which will go entirely to the Belgian consortium 12-12. On 26 March, we will be raising the voice of youth and the future with Youth Orchestra Flanders, accompanied by pianist Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort.
