On Friday 26th October, one of America’s most prolific composers, John Williams, was celebrated at the Royal Albert Hall with Air-Edel’s Dirk Brosséand the London Symphony Orchestra. Mr Williams had travelled specially to London to conduct some of his greatest works but was taken ill last-minute and unfortunately was unable to take to the podium. It was his wish that this special concert should go ahead under the direction of Belgian conductor and close friend Dirk Brossé, for which he was extremely grateful.
“John is so sorry that an illness prevents him from conducting Friday’s concert, and he’s grateful to his friend Maestro Dirk Brossé for taking the podium in his place...”
Dirk is currently Music Director of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and of Ghent Film Festival and professor of composition and conducting at the School of Arts / Royal Conservatory of Music in Ghent. He made his first appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in 2007 (with the LSO) and his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2016– and John Williams chose him as Principal Conductor of the ‘Star Wars in Concert World Tour.
