Let's join the belgian clarinet quartet 'Clarnival' in creating a CD covering all possible styles (Jazz, Pop, Classical) in Budapest!


The project

Hello everybody!


We’re Clarnival, a young clarinet quartet from Brussels, Belgium, where we met during our music studies in the halls of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, and have been forming a warm and generous quartet sound and especially a repertoire which goes from jazz to waltz, passing by bossa nova, classical, as well as rock and pop.






The members of Clarnival are:


-Véronique Bernar from Esch/Alzette, Luxemburg (B-flat clarinette)




-Bethsabée Hatzfeld from Brussels, Belgium (bass clarinet)




-Philippe Lemaire from Eupen, Belgium (B-flat and E-flat clarinet)




-Cédric De Bruycker from Arlon, Belgium (B-flat clarinet)





We’ve been playing together since 2011 and after different concerts last year with the hungarian oboist Laszlo Zsolt Pinter, we felt that it’s high time to perpetuate our work we’ve been doing over the years,...





We’re so excited to have the unique opportunity to create our first CD in the Utopiastudio in Budapest, Hungary during the week of August 15th ! There will be two different parts:during the first one, Clarnival will play together with Laszlo (Oboe Concerto of Marcello, a Filmmusicmedley regrouping the best mélodies of Ennio Morricone,...) and the second part will be consisting of a lighter repertoire (West Side Story, a Klezmer Piece, a Popmedley,...) played only by Clarnival!




This Cd-recording is just the beginning of a long journey, as we will promote the CDs by different concerts in the hungarian Balassi Institutes (cultural centers) all over Europe ; the idea behind this is a cultural exchange and meeting between hungarian and belgian artists, music and culture, in fact, it is a meeting between two different countries and their respective cultures, an exchange which all of Europe desperately needs as we speak…


We frankly cannot do this without your help! We still need to raise a minimum of 4000€, which is really the bare minimum we need to collect in order to actually have a chance to record our first CD, as we need the money for booking the studio, with all its mastering and mixing work, printing the cds, sending the rewards,…


Please help us and spread the word via all of your favorite social medias (Facebook, Twitter,…), or by smoke signals if you feel so…


If you haven't done it yet, please "Follow" & "Like" our Facebook page!
