About the album

The Royal Flemish Philharmonic is proud to present its recordings in three high quality series, each with its distinct character. Belgian Boutique uncovers hidden gems from Belgium’s Romantic composers. Cutting Edge documents remarkable works of contemporary classical music.

The second Belgian Boutique CD combines works by two composers from the South of Belgium. First there is the mystical, Wagnerian Sixth Symphony by Jewish composer Adolphe Samuel, in which he presents the story of the Creation. Then there is Joseph Jongen’s last orchestral piece, the neo-impressionist Three Symphonic Movements. ‘It is all extraordinary music, very special and spectacular’, conductor Martyn Brabbins explains. ‘You can really feel that Belgian music is situated somewhere between the French and the German repertoire. As a Brit, I find it extremely interesting to discover this unexplored repertoire.’
Lohnenswerte Entdeckungen sinfonischer Werke auf Belgien mit dem Royal Flemish Philharmonic unter dem brillanten Dirigenten Martyn Brabbins.

In der Serie „Belgian Boutique“ erscheint diese CD mit dem Royal Flemish Philharmonic und stellt zwei Komponisten aus dem Süden des Landes vor. Zuerst erklingt die mystische, an Wagner erinnernde Sechste Sinfonie des jüdischen Komponisten Adolphe Samuel aus dem Jahre 1891. In ihr verarbeitete der Komponist die Schöpfungsgeschichte. Das zweite Werk der Aufnahme stammt von Joseph Jongen und entstand 1951. Die „Drei symphonischen Sätze“ stehen im neo-impressionistischen Stil und sind ebenso wie die Sinfonie von Samuel eine lohnenswerte Entdeckung.
