We have to wait until May for a concert by the prestigious Berliner Philharmoniker, but the outstanding brass section of this orchestra pays an earlier visit to the Henry Le Boeuf Hall. Critics praise the pure technique and intonation of these world-renowned brass players. They bring to BOZAR a gripping programme, which includes works by Johan Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Giacomo Puccini. For this concert they are supported by the fantastic BOZAR organ. The warm brass sounds and deep tones of the organ are a joy to listen to. Simply unmissable!
