...composers from the Impressionist movement had taken Wagner's chromatic tonality about as far as it could go, while at the same time, adding an increasingly French accent to it. Jongen continues this direction, creating a work that might be described as neo-impressionistic. Right from the opening of Three Symphonic Movements, the shimmering harmonies and perfumed sonorities of a post-Debussy world are apparent. ... read more ...

The second CD in the Belgian Boutique series 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.

A modern and stylistically flexible symphony orchestra, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic demonstrates an artistic flair that allows for a variety of styles, from classical to contemporary, in a historically authentic manner. Chief Conductor Edo de Waart is responsible for the orchestra's main repertoire. Drawing on his vast orchestral experience, as former Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (among others), he contributes to the unique character of the Royal Flemish Philharmonic. He works in close cooperation with Principal Conductor Philippe Herreweghe; Martyn Brabbins is Principal Guest Conductor.
