Listen to the astounding sound of the young cellist Abel Selaocoe

Last year, the young cellist Abel Selaocoe took a packed Recital Hall on an unforgettable musical journey. Now he is back in the Main Hall with the Dutch premiere of his own cello concerto Four Spirits. After the World premiere The Scotsman wrote: "When such a unique force of nature as South African cellist Abel Selaocoe explodes onto the stage, you know the show is well and truly stolen."

In addition to Four Spirits, philharmonie zuidnederland will be playing highlights from Bernstein's poignant and colourful love drama West Side Story. This concert promises to be mesmerising and full of vitality!
