Belgian-native Jan Van der Roost leads a prolific career as a composer, writing works that span a variety of genres and styles, from oratorios and symphonies to lieder cycles and wind band chamber pieces. Van der Roost’s unique style has ushered international renown, with his works recorded and performed worldwide, in addition to his guest professorships across four continents. SIRIUS, Van der Roost’s debut solo release on Navona, presents three of his orchestral works: Sirius, a bright overture commissioned by De Nieuwe Veste; Sinfonia Per Orchestra, a four-movement cyclical piece commissioned by the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven; and Manhattan Pictures, a colorful piece evoking the multi-cultural atmosphere of Manhattan.
