A piccolo concerto, a rare gem. Peter Verhoyen, the piccolo player of the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, showcases his mastery in Levente Gyöngyösi's composition. He demonstrates the virtuosity of this small yet powerful instrument, balancing lyricism and expression. The same applies to Prokofiev's Third Symphony, composed in the early Soviet Union amid turbulent times. Despite the upheaval, Prokofiev adeptly translates it into a potent musical piece, blending lyrical moments with sharp, rhythmic, and occasionally dissonant passages. Join us for a Sunday morning filled with intense emotions and boundless energy.
