Andrei Serban + stringorchestra Tollens: Hubay Hejre Kati, Porumbescu Ballade+ Serban Suite

November 18, 2010 at 4:16 PM

The Rumanian Andrei Serban http://www.andrei-serban.nl/  made arrangements for stringorchestra. After 4 rehearsals with him we gave a concert with our amateurorchestra Tollens Ensemble http://www.tollensensemble.nl/  After 4 rehearsals with him we gave a concert with our amateurorchestra Tollens Ensemble:  He is difficult to follow, because in every bar the tempo changes. He made a suite of 10 gypsy and folk pieces of different area's in Rumania. We also play a 7/16 th bar. I thought that would be Turkish influence and that was true. After the discovery of Porumbescu Balada + Hejre Kati of Jeno Hubay (the name of my blog) some years ago I got the unreal chance to play these rare pieces once in my life.
