In 2014 Rik Ghesquière created with composer Piet Swerts the musical theatre and ballet production ” Moeder zonder meer’ a memorial to World War I for narrator, solo clarinet, chamber orchestra and ballet. Rik conducted the soloists of the Brussels Philharmonic, in cooperation with clarinetist Eddy Vanoosthuyse and Ballet Vlaanderen. Piet Swerts performed on the piano and Frank Verdru recited the poem of Luc Vanhauwaert.
Plans for performances for the end of World War I memorials in Belgium and the USA are being prepared. We are in close contact with the Parthenon in Nashville for concerts around 11 November 2018.
