Finally a concert by the Goois Symphony Orchestra



The GSO play Beethoven and Dvořák staan on Sunday 31 October.  For this afternoon concert in the MCO complex the GSO work with the Atlantic Trio.  This is the first concert for the GSO since the corona lockdowns began a year and a half ago. The musicians are breathing a sigh of relief:  "Finally we can play again!" 


The Goois Symphony Orchestra has weathered the corona-crisis well, and now it's time to celebrate with a special concert.


Under the baton of Joost Geevers, the orchestra begin with Beethovens Overture ‘Egmont’  and with a selection from Antonín Dvořák's Legends.  The Legends are a collection of short pieces with quickly changing tempos and keys.  These are pearls of the orchestra literature that despite being seldom performed, promise just as much listening pleasure as the great symphonies of the Czech master.


After the intermission three soloists take the stage:  The Atlantic Trio, consisting of Hilversum violinist Janneke van Prooijen, 'cellist Ansfried Plat and pianist Bas Verheijden.  Together with the orchestra they perform Ludwig van Beethoven's Triple Concerto.   This monumental piece is surely recognizable as music of Beethoven - sometimes lyrical, but intense ... intimate yet grand, with virtuosic passages for the soloists, and ending with a fantastic finale.
