JAN 2018 – New Year Concerts 2018

2018 is a celebration year for CASCO Phil! 10 years ago, in 2008, this unique orchestra played their very first concert. Meanwhile, they completed a beautiful musical journey and enjoy a solid reputation at home and abroad.
During the New Year concerts, the audience will make a short trip starting in the Renaissance with William Byrd’s festive and impressive brass composition, towards the exciting La Folia of the Italian baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli. From the baroque master, we go to the master of classicism, Joseph Haydn, with his short, fresh and light-hearted 64th symphony.

Of course, there is also a world-class soloist in such a musical party. CASCO Phil brings the young American-Korean top cellist Han Bin Yoon to Bornem. He belongs to the very best cellists of his generation and plays one of the most virtuous and hardest works ever composed for his instrument, the Rococo Variations of Tchaikovsky.

After that we go to Vienna with the famous Der Zigeunerbaron Ouvertüre by Johann Strauss, followed by a selection of well-known Viennese classics.
