With his four last lieder from 1948, Richard Strauss let the romantic art of the lied go under in a glorious, deep evening glow. It is the consummate work with which to conclude our series of concerts centred on Tchaikovsky and Strauss. Soprano Sally Matthews, who one month later will debut in Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, teams up with the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra and Alain Altinoglu to guide us through its profound joy and sorrow, which find a worthy counterpart in Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. And then there is still the Belgian premiere of Waves, Pascal Dusapin’s latest organ concerto … An outstanding musical evening.

    Portrait: Pascal Dusapin

    What brings together violinist Renaud Capuçon, organist Olivier Latry, the Danel Quartet, the Belgian National Orchestra and La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra? Answer: BOZAR’s tribute to French composer Pascal Dusapin. It is an obvious choice to highlight the work of this gifted musician, who has distinguished himself in every genre – with solo, chamber, symphony, and vocal works – and has developed a long-standing relationship with Belgium and La Monnaie.
