Description: 65 minutes of short early- and late-Romantic orchestral pieces from Flemish composers of which the longest are Hanssens’ pocket-sized 17-minute, single-movement concerto of 1836, comparable in form and length to what his exact contemporary Bériot was doing at the same time, and Grisar’s 9:30 overture (1852) which is kind of a Flemish Egmont with a dash of Rossini. Also of note is de Boeck’s Ronde du Sabbat of 1893, a Flemish take on the subject of Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre. Milan Pala (violin), Diechje Minne (horn), Didier Poskin (cello), Hradec Králové Philharmonic; Herman Engels.
