This interactive concert with the Liège Royal Philharmonic tells the tale of a girl that sets off on an adventure, from the source to the sea by way of calm waters and wild oceans until it reaches its final destination: a new world. Water, a common inspiration for composers, becomes a beautiful metaphor for the emotions felt through music but also the journey from childhood to adulthood. Throughout the concert, artist Pieter Fannes paints watercolours that are projected live on the screen.
