About three years after launching the CD, Brel in Afrikaans,
followed by a very successful concert tour in South Africa and in
Europe, Herman van den Berg is back with a second CD, Brel- Laat my
by jou bly(Let me stay with you), which does homage to the master
of French chansons.
Herman says: The scope of the first CD was more limited and the
songs focussed on the milestones marking Brels career. In this
second album more effort went into the musical arrangements and
more of my personal favourites were included. Some of these songs
comment bitingly on social affairs and others are heartrenderingly
beautiful. When I heard these songs, I thought it would be a shame
not to record them in Afrikaans. My decision to work with strings
for this CD supplied a new dimension from the beginning. It even
influenced the selection of songs. The resulting arrangements are
more complex and nuanced.
Herman managed the singing, guitars, arrangements and mixing.
Matthys Maree was the pianist for all songs except Die wanhopiges
(The desperate ones) where Saranti Rheeders played the keys. The
accordionist was Sergio Zampolli. The rest of the orchestra was
composed of experienced musicians: David Klassen (drums and
percussion), Theo Klassen(bass guitar) and Jaconelle Mouton
