Music transcends today’s factual boundaries, echoes the natural, musical borders of yesteryear, and, above all, acts as the connecting factor between different cultural regions. Casco Phil takes you on a journey that began hundreds of years ago and introduces you to folk music from Hungary, rousing Klezmer from Romania, festive French music at the court of Louis XIV and much more. From all corners of Europe, you will hear beautiful music as we take you on a complete ‘tour musicale’, from Western Europe to Central Europe and Northern Europe, before ending in Southern Europe via Eastern Europe. The programme takes a journey across Europe, focusing on the current members of the European Union. At the same time, we also take a journey through time. This includes music from the 16th century (by Philippus De Monte from Mechelen), but also Baroque music, music from Classicism and Romanticism, a considerable amount of folk music arranged for orchestra, and of course a touch of accessible modern music. Cultural regions are highlighted in music throughout the different eras that have made the Europe that we know today.
