Last weekend the Royal wind band Delft performed the Golden Age concert in the New Church in Delft. What a great venue !
The Program was structured around the Golden Age, and was a overview of the history of Delft from this famous period which was also the start of Delft Blue. It took us all the way from the 17th centurie into present age. Delft celebrates the Golden Age. Delft painters like Johannes Vermeer en Pieter de Hooch besides some famous scientists as Hugo de Groot, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek and Reinier de Graaf.
Highlight for me was the world premiere of Lux Futura composed by Kevin Houben. What a passionate and great performance. The composition is stunning, it puts the city of Delft on music, and brings the history with the famous painters, the royal graves to the present with TU Delft. De DELFT theme works so well and I love the sound samples !
Francis Broekhuizen was the compere.
The score was given to the community of Delft by the president of the Orchestra: Thijs Peerboom.
