Concert Sevenum - Around Five

This message was contributed by Nard Reijnders on 5/8/06.

Dear Collegues,

As a collegue I want to thank all of you very much for the enthousiastic way of playing, it was a great pleasure for me to play the Concerto for Alto Sax and Brassquintet with you, and Simon's arrangement made Chick Corea's La Fiesta indeed to a festive tour the force.

As the director of the Summerfestival Klassiek op Locatie I have to say that your professional way of working is very special. 100 percent is not enough for FAB, you always give a little more. After the concert and also yesterday (the next concert) many people of our audience talked very, very, very positiv about your concert.

Last but not least the Around Five composition was a real happening. I had the honour to conduct the world premiere. You gave me and the 25 amateur musicians out of the region a real kick and stimulated us to a higher level. The composer Bernard van Beurden had a long radio-interview on the "day after". He was very complementary to FAB: knowing that the music he wrote was not easy for the soloists, he talked very enthousiastic about the way everybody played his part. Literally he said: "I'm a very happy man".
I hope we keep going on working together.
Best wishes for all of you,
Nard Reijnders.
