Music Chapel Festival : 04>07.12.2019
Tribute to Eugène Ysaÿe
This year, the 10th edition of the Music Chapel Festival at Flagey will pay a tribute to Eugène Ysaÿe, the King of violin. This festival will immerse listeners in the work of Ysaÿe and of his favorite composers through recitals, chamber
music and concerts with orchestra. The presence of such violinists as Joshua Bell, Renaud Capuçon, Augustin Dumay and Philippe Graffin and of a younger generation of musicians such as Lorenzo Gatto, Kerson Leong and Yossif Ivanov is proof that the musical heritage left by Ysaÿe to generations of violinists is still alive today.
Three orchestras (Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Brussels Philharmonic, Les Métamorphoses), a choir (Octopus) and a large number of artists will complete the program of this festival dedicated to Ysaÿe. They will all shed
new light on Ysaÿe’s music and his influence on the composers of his time: Franck, Fauré, Chausson, Ravel, Lekeu, Saint-Saëns and many more.
