Abel Selaocoe & Fred Thomas

The South African cellist Abel Selaocoe redefines the possibilities of the cello. His honest sound moves through a colourful abundance of genres and styles, from collaborations with world musicians to beat boxers. Selaocoe combines virtuoso performances with improvisation, vocals and body percussion. In his performances he effortlessly links diverse musical traditions with the aim of bringing classical music closer to a wide audience. It’s no surprise that he was asked to create a whole programme at the BBC Proms in 2021!

Roby Lakatos

  • Capitole

Roby Lakatos is a face familiar to the Ghent OdeGand audience. In 2007 he gave an absolutely stellar performance which earned him the deserved nickname ‘King of De Klezmer’. Lakatos, who feels equally at home in the classical, jazz and Hungarian repertoires, is one of the few musicians who transcends the boundaries of his art. He is simultaneously the prince of the violin, a classical virtuoso, a jazz improviser, a composer and arranger, and a survivor of the 19th century. A musical Homo Universalis. Passionate, powerful, elegant, with panache and finesse. This concert promises to be a true spectacle.
