Valkenswaards Kamerorkest - De salonmuziek voorbij


In today’s world, which is more focused on inclusivity, we can hardly imagine how difficult it was for a female composer in the 19th century to make a name for herself or to draw attention to herself as a lower-class person. This afternoon, the musical journey will take us through Fanny Mendelssohn Bartholdy-Hensel's overture. The only purely orchestral work she wrote and that was never performed during her lifetime. Furthermore, we will also perform a flute concerto by Cécile Chaminade, who tried to rise above her salon songs. We will conclude the afternoon with Symphony No.8, the ‘English' by Antonin Dvorák, which he wrote just before he became world famous with his 9th symphony 'From the New World'.
