The Residentie Orkest – Business Circle welcomed its members and partners to the traditional Prinsjesdag concert. The guests were treated to an excellent walking dinner buffet.
The annual Prinsjesdag concert took place at the Amare theatre in The Hague on 20th September 2022. Hundreds of music lovers flocked to the Amare theatre. The welcome address was by Mayor of The Hague, Jan van Zanen and Sven Arne Tepl, director of the Residentie orkest.
On this festive occasion, the Residentie Orkest introduced the new artist Yeol Eum Son, who played a classic by Ravel. Yeol Eum Son is, Versatile, graceful, young and timeless! Son beautifully opened the season.
Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G clearly shows an American influence full of jazz and dynamics. A varied and surprising composition that challenges the pianist in virtuosity but also in finding the sound and touché.
The soloist and orchestra also stay with Ravel for the second piece, this time as orchestrator of Modest Musorgsky’s Painting Exhibition. A monumental and visual piece, which is just as unique as Son as a new artist in town.
The student orchestra, The Residents also performed. Together with the Residentie Orkest they played music from the movie the Avengers.
