Frank Sinatra passed away on 14 May 1998. On this day 25 years later, we commemorate one of the most legendary singers in modern history with a newly commissioned work composed by our ‘own’ composer-pianist Jef Neve.
With his Sinatra Concerto, he pays musical homage to ‘The Voice’ Frank Sinatra, using world-renowned hits like My Way, New York, New York, and many others as a basis. Jef Neve plays the piano himself, of course, and performs his new work along with Casco Phil and conductor Benjamin Haemhouts.
This world premiere, exactly a quarter century after Frank Sinatra’s passing, is one of the highlights of the festival. Not to be missed!
