The CD Music for Strings is the result of a collaboration between the string orchestra Young Belgian Strings conducted by Dirk Van de Moortel and award winning composer Dirk Brossé. Music for Strings contains existing and new compositions for string orchestra and compositions for soloist and string orchestra. For this album, composer and conductor were able to call upon top Belgian artists such as violinist Lorenzo Gatto, cellist Marie Hallynck, soprano Ana Naqe and saxophonist Frank Debruyne.
Dirk Brossé on the collaboration:
‘The new generation of young Belgian musicians is in the starting blocks. Dirk Van de Moortel, together with the musicians from his Young Belgian Strings and the brilliant soloists, have made my music sound like I have seldom heard it before!
