Brussels Muzieque returns with chamber music concert on 3 November

Divertimento chamber music concert
14:44 21/10/2021

Following the success of the Phoenix Festival, Brussels Muzieque returns with a monthly concert series of chamber music, featuring soloists from prestigious Belgian and European Orchestras.

In the first concert of the series, Divertimento, on 3 November, four Brussels-based musicians with Italian roots present a colourful programme with an unorthodox instrument combination.

Matteo Del Monte and Antonio Capolupo, solo flutist and solo clarinetist of La Monnaie Opera, Gordon Fantini, solo bassoonist of the Belgian National Orchestra, and Eduardo Tonietto, cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque, will recreate well-known and beloved pieces by Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, all transcribed for this original range of instruments.

Divertimento concert at Art Base on 11 November

A highlight of the programme will be the transcription of the renowned Divertimento in D major by Mozart, which was originally written for string quartet. It’s a unique opportunity to listen to the piece performed with totally different instrumentation.

Stay tuned for future concerts, including the next one in the series on 10 December, with a trio of soprano, clarinet and piano.

Divertimento, 3 November, 20.00, Art Base, Rue des Sables 29. Sorry! Our prize giveaway has now closed and the winners have been notified.
