Vlaams Radio Koor

Prelude to Eternity. Founded in 1937 by the Belgian National Broadcasting Corporation, the Vlaams Radio Koor (Flemish Radio Choir) is a professional chamber choir with an extensive repertory and a special focus on Flemish and contemporary music. Each season the choir also commissions works from a number of Flemish composers. Since 1998, the year when it became independent from the network, the choir has grown from a studio ensemble into a concert ensemble. From the beginning of the 2011 season, the 24-member choir has been under the leadership of renowned conductor Hervé Niquet. The choir’s international recognition has also been enhanced by a CD series. The programme presented in Rome and entitled Prelude to Eternity features music by Gouvy, Franck, Wolf and Reger.
