Johannette Zomer / The Gents

Information GreatBrittain Germany

After recordings of English Renaissance and German romantic music, and twentieth-century works from France, we venture across the ocean to the new world, with a CD that takes us to Broadway.

Jetse Bremer has specially arranged the last compositions by George Gershwin for this combination of soloist, choir and instruments. I am delighted that the flexibility and homogeneous sound of The Gents matches these songs so well.

For all of us with a classical background this repertoire is a special challenge, raising the question where classical stops or changes into something else.

It is our pleasure to leave the answer to you.
