About the album

Behold the Lamb of God, or better still: listen to it. At the invitation of clarinet virtuoso Eddy Vanoosthuyse, three Belgian composers translated Flanders' most famous painting in new music. Alain Crépin's dazzling Lamb Gods Impressions are performed on clarinet by the commissioner himself, with Elisabeth Competition winner Vitaly Samoshko at the piano. Johan Duijck conducts the Flemish Radio Choir in his ethereal L'Homme Désarmé, while Dirk Brossé unveils The secret of The Mystic Lamb, a marvellous quest in which the Brussels Philharmonic sparkles alongside Vanoosthuyse’s solo clarinet. Listening to the Lamb: a divine delight.
Op dit album Van Eyck Revisited is het beroemdste schilderij van Vlaanderen, 'De Aanbidding van het Lam Gods', verklankt door drie Belgische componisten. Aanschouw het Lam Gods, of beter nog: luister ernaar. Het is een goddelijke verrukking.

Het wereldberoemde veelluik ‘De aanbidding van het Lam Gods’ behoort tot de meest bewonderde en bestudeerde kunstwerken uit de geschiedenis. Historici uit alle uithoeken van de wereld bogen zich over de uiteenlopende aspecten van dit unieke meesterwerk dat zich zo onderscheidt van welk ander kunstobject in de wereld dan ook. Door zijn vele betekenissen zet het werk de mens aan het denken. Elke visie roept nieuwe vragen op, die zorgen voor inzichten die op hun beurt weer andere vragen genereren. De ‘Aanbidding van het Lam Gods’ blijft een eeuwig enigma.

Een enigma dat voor klarinetvirtuoos Eddy Vanoosthuyse de inspiratiebron was om drie Belgische componisten uit te nodigen het werk te vertalen in muziek. Dat is prachtig gelukt. Alain Crépin componeerde de spetterende Lamb Gods Impressions, gespeeld door de meester zelf samen met Vitaly Samoshko, winnaar van het Elisabeth Concours, aan de piano.

Johan Duijck dirigeert het Vlaams Radio Koor in zijn etherische L'Homme Désarmé, terwijl Dirk Brossé Het geheim van The Mystic Lamb onthult, een prachtige zoektocht waarin het Brussels Philharmonic schittert naast Vanoosthuyse's soloklarinet.
Sehen Sie das Lamm Gottes, oder besser noch: hören Sie es. Auf Einladung des Klarinettenvirtuosen Eddy Vanoosthuyse übersetzten drei belgische Komponisten Flanderns berühmtestes Gemälde in neue Musik. Alain Crépins schillernde Lamm Gottes Impressionen werden vom Auftraggeber selbst auf der Klarinette gespielt, mit dem Gewinner des Elisabeth-Wettbewerbs Vitaly Samoshko am Klavier. Johan Duijck dirigiert den Flämischen Rundfunkchor in seinem ätherischen L'Homme Désarmé, während Dirk Brossé das Geheimnis des Mystischen Lamms lüftet, eine wunderbare Suche, bei der die Brüsseler Philharmoniker neben Vanoosthuyses Soloklarinette funkeln. Dem Lamm zuzuhören: ein göttlicher Genuss.

Brussels Philharmonic

“The world needs symphonic music.  And symphonic music needs the world.” That is the firm belief of the Brussels Philharmonic. As a symphony orchestra founded in 1935 under the auspices of the Belgian public broadcaster, unveiling the symphonic world as best we can is deep in our DNA. By innovating while maintaining full respect for the value of the past, we keep the symphonic music of the past, present and future relevant and inspiring – for ourselves and all of society. We do this from the historic Studio 4 at Flagey in Brussels, together with our music director Kazushi Ono: he shares our open and adventurous spirit and our rock-solid belief in the need for cross-fertilization between art, life and society.
