About the album

This CD came to be due to the huge respect that Eddy Vanoosthuyse has for the both Roeselaarse composers. He came to know them throughout different time periods of his career: He met Raymond Ducancq at a young age as a conductor and composer and immediately they developed a strong mutual respect for each other. Raymond dedicated a number of pieces to him and conducted a number of his works for Harmony Orchestra’s both at home and abroad. It’s via this connection that he recorded ‘Nostalgia’ with the Presidential Orchestra of Lithiuana (Orchestra of the Lithuanian Armed Forces) in the period that he was chief guest conductor. Vanoosthuysehas has a great deal of respect for this humble conductor. Vanoosthuyse came in contact with Willy Soenen through a common friend (Guido Six). It goes without saying that the two developed great respect for each other. Vanoosthuyse conducted a number of pieces for clarinet choir and harmony orchestra composed by Soenen. Willy dedicated ‘Concertino for Eddy’ to him after which he created ‘Midwest Clinic’ in Chicago.
Diese CD entstand aufgrund des großen Respekts, den Eddy Vanoosthuyse vor den beiden Roeselaarse-Komponisten hat. Er lernte sie in verschiedenen Zeitabschnitten seiner Karriere kennen: Raymond Ducancq lernte er in jungen Jahren als Dirigent und Komponist schätzen, und sie entwickelten sofort einen starken gegenseitigen Respekt füreinander. Raymond widmete ihm eine Reihe von Stücken und dirigierte eine Reihe seiner Werke für Harmony Orchestra's im In- und Ausland. Über diese Verbindung nahm er mit dem Präsidentenorchester von Litauen (Orchester der litauischen Streitkräfte) in der Zeit, in der er Erster Gastdirigent war, Nostalgia" auf. Vanoosthuysehas hat großen Respekt vor diesem bescheidenen Dirigenten. Vanoosthuyse kam durch einen gemeinsamen Freund (Guido Six) mit Willy Soenen in Kontakt. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass die beiden große Hochachtung füreinander entwickelten. Vanoosthuyse dirigierte eine Reihe von Stücken für Klarinettenchor und Harmonieorchester, die von Soenen komponiert wurden. Willy Vanoosthuyse widmete ihm das "Concertino for Eddy", woraufhin er die "Midwest Clinic" in Chicago gründete.
