  • The arrival of the Queen of Sheba - Georg Friedrich Handel

    3:34

    Concert 29 May 2011 in the OLV Van Pamelekerk, Oudenaarde, Flanders, Belgium. Coloratura soprano Ann De Renais singing opera arias with the Mechels Chamber Orchestra (MKO) conducted by Tom Vanden Eynde.

    The belgian born conductor Tom Van den Eynde (1980) studied classical guitar, violin, piano, harmony and counterpoint at the Conservatory of Mechelen. When he was fifteen he started taking private conducting lessons with Silveer Van den broeck.
    At the age of eighteen, he went to the Netherlands (Maastricht & Rotterdam) to continue his musical studies : orchestral conducting with Sir Jan Stulen and classical guitar with Cees Dirkx. After three years, he finished his guitar studies as a teaching and performing musician.

    In June 2000, he conducted the Dutch première of Previns « Concerto for guitar and orchestra ». In September 2000, he also assisted his present teacher Jan Stulen in « Le jongleur the Notre-Dame », a church opera of Peter Maxwell Davies which was broadcasted by the Dutch radio and television.

    Tom joined in July 2001 the Wiener Meisterkurse with Sir Salvador Mas Conde. There he was one of the few applicants to conduct the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra (Bulgaria) at the final concert in Vienna.

    One year later, he conducted the Orquestra Sinfónica del Vallès in Barcelona during the International Conducting Course Igualada with maestro Antoni Ros Marba (July 2002).

    In August 2002, Tom made his debut with the Brabant Orchestra (Eindhoven, the Netherlands) conducting the Franck Symphony during the final concert of a masterclass with maestro Marc Soustrot. A year later, he conducted this orchestra for a second time in a Beethoven program.

    Tom also have been conducting the Dutch Promenade Orchestra (Amsterdam) in concert for several times.

    From 1998 till 2003, Tom was serving as assistant-conductor of the Flemish Symphony Orchestra. In November 2003, he finished his conducting studies at the Conservatory of Maastricht by conducting the University Orchestra of Louvain (Belgium) in Harold in Italy (Berlioz) and Symphony n°9 From the New World (Dvorak).

    In april 2004 he founded the Mechels Chamber Orchestra. It is a semi-professional orchestra of 35 musicians. In a short time, Tom raised this orchestra into a high level. Many international soloists as André De Groote (piano), Luc Tooten (cello), Marc Tooten (viola), Olsi Leka (cello), Jean-Luc Votano (clarinet), etc, have been working together with the orchestra and praised the orchestra for their enthousiasm and precise playing.

    In august 2007 Tom made his first CD recording in Slovak Republic. Together with guitarist Wim Brioen and recording engineer Jaroslav Stranavksi (Brilliant Classics), he made a recording of three excellent flemish guitarconcerto's. For this opportunity, Tom conducted the Slovak State Chamber Orchestra of Zilina.

  • The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba

    3:25

    Title: The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
    Composer: George Frideric Handel (1749)
    Instrument: Hauptwerk Player Organ
    from: My own CODM organ
    Derived from a MIDI sequence by George Pollen (2003)

    I think that this is one of the most delightful pieces I have ever heard!

    For those of you who are familiar with this piece, I should warn you that I have taken some liberties with the registration (which pipes are used). The original actually calls for two oboes in what sounds to me like fanfare sections. So, this being the arrival of a queen, I have the fanfares played by trumpets. In fact, I sort of up scaled the whole piece to use a lot of the big organ sounds available. After all, the queen's arrival ought to be a big, triumphant deal, I would think.

    From the Encyclopedia Britannica :
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, sinfonia for two oboes and strings by George Frideric Handel that premiered in London on March 17, 1749, as the first scene of Act III in the oratorio Solomon. One of the last of Handel’s many oratorios, Solomon is rarely performed in its entirety, but Handel’s bright and lively “The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” interlude is a widely appreciated processional set piece. It often was (and it continues to be) played during wedding ceremonies. A noted public performance of the piece occurred during the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
