Songs for the Crossing

Brussels Philharmonic & Vlaams Radio Koor, Hanne Roos

Songs for the Crossing by Belgian composer Jeroen D’hoe, based on text by Stefan Hertmans, remind us of the infamous crossing of the Yser in Tervaete during World War I. But at the same time, the project could not be more up-to-date: ‘the crossing’ is a metaphor for the current migration of refugees all over the world.
