‘Belgian National Orchestra, Franck & Hahn’

28 + 30
Jan.'22

The American star violinist Hilary Hahn is for the first time the Belgian National Orchestra’s guest. The programme features the Violin Concerto by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Obsessed by Finnish sagas, lakes and forests, Sibelius combines a late romantic style with a modern Nordic sound aesthetics in this work. After being accused of ‘formalism’ by the Russian authorities, the Polish composer Lutosławski began to base his compositions on folk music. His Concerto for Orchestra (1954) in three movements draws inspiration from the Polish region of Kurpie, and the work earned Lutosławski international recognition.
