‘Bozar Next Generation: Young Belgian Strings’

27 Feb.'22
- 11:00

The Young Belgian Strings, consisting of 21 young talents from all the Belgian conservatories, come together to prepare themselves for a future professional career by making music together. During the Shostakovich Festival, they will perform Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony, an arrangement of his popular Eighth String Quartet. 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Sonoko Miriam Welde is unfortunately unable to perform during this concert. Many thanks to Emmanuel Coppey for replacing her. The concert programme remains unchanged.

Emmanuel Coppey is a London-based violinist who has established a solid reputation as a soloist and chamber musician. A graduate of the CNSMD in Paris, where he studied with Svetlin Roussev and Philippe Graffin, and of the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he studied with the legendary Hungarian violinist György Pauk, Emmanuel is now artist-in-residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel under the tutelage of Augustin Dumay. He has shared the stage with Anna Vinnitskaya, Barbara Hannigan, Renaud Capuçon, Nelson Goerner, Marc Coppey, Miguel Da Silva and Augustin Dumay. He plays on a Deconet violin from 1754, on loan from the Guttman Collection.
