Lunchtime concert / Con italianità

06/02/2014 in Antwerp - 07/02/2014 in Ghent

Instrumental Bel Canto

In his day, Antonio Pasculli (1842-1924) was known as ‘the Paganini of the oboe’. For this instrument he wrote highly virtuoso transcriptions of opera melodies by Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini. Together with string players from the Flanders Opera Symphony Orchestra, its oboe soloist Arie Van der Beek will perform some fine examples of ‘instrumental Bel Canto’.

Oboe and strings in chamber music by Boccherini and works by Donizetti, Rossini and Pasculli.

With: Arie Van der Beek (oboe), Alwin Wauters (violin), Se-Yun Lee (violin), Béatrice Derolez (alto), Jadranka Gasparovic (cello), Yanou Pauwels (double bass)

Lunchtime concert?
Every month our foyers are open for a lunchtime concert that takes a surprising musical approach to the opera on the bill at the time. The perfect opportunity to hear musicians from the chorus and orchestra performing as soloists, as well as young singers and specialists in chamber music. After the lunchtime concert you can also have a hot lunch at the neighbouring restaurant.


Tickets from € 8.00 to € 32.50
