If you want to not only see and hear music but also feel it sizzling, then this final concert is not to be missed! If the hereafter ever takes tangible form, it will be here!
The deeply religious Messiaen put some imposing scenery along the way to the hereafter with Éclairs sur l’Au-Delà and Et Exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. His impressive ensemble of more than forty musicians uses only woodwinds, brass and percussion.
Slowly but inevitably, his music propels itself to finally transcend the finite.

I Solisti del vento o.l.v. Robin Engelen
No challenge is too great for I
SOLISTI, as long as they can play their instruments. What started out
as a traditional wind octet has become an internationally renowned all round
music ensemble under the leadership of artistic director Francis Pollet. I
SOLISTI unites superb musicians, each with their own reputation as soloist,
orchestral or chamber musician. The core, made up of 25 musicians, is expanded
or restricted according to the needs of each singular project.
