On the 25th of August, 1918, one of the most influential composers and conductors of the 20th century was born in Massachusetts. 100 years later, Leonard Bernstein’s music is still performed and heard by many. The Eindhoven student association for classical music, ESMG Quadrivium, looks back on a century of his works.
Hence on Sunday, the 18th of November 2018, “A Century of Bernstein” will be performed. During this concert, the three sub-associations of Quadrivium will perform various works of his impressive oeuvre. Classics like West Side Story, the surprising musical arrangement of On the Town and lesser known pieces such as the Divertimento will all be brought to the audience. To crown it all, the rarely performed “Chichester Psalms” will be performed, in a unique arrangement for choir, organ, soloist and more.
Wind orchestra Auletes, symphony orchestra Ensuite and mixed choir Vokollage all consist of enthusiastic students and are led by spirited conductors. On Sunday afternoon, the 18 of November, you can hear these three groups perform a unique concert: “A Century of Bernstein!”
Wind orchestra Auletes, led by Paul van Gils
