Chamber music by Debussy and Ysaÿe; Lieder by Chausson
In 2018, we commemorate the centennial of Debussy's death. The French composer of Pelléas et Mélisande grew up in the romantic shadow of Tristan und Isolde but gradually became a prophet of a new music. Violinist Maximilian Lohse, the new concertmaster of Opera Vlaanderen, pianist Nicolas Callot and mezzosoprano Raphaële Green not only pay homage to Debussy with an interpretation of his sublime Violin Sonata from 1917, but also zoom in on Debussy's late romantic background with Poème élégiaque (1892-'93) by the Belgian violin virtuoso Eugène Ysaÿe. And the fin de siècle panorama will be completed by Serres chaudes (1893-'96), a song cycle by Ernest Chausson to the poetry of Maurice Maeterlinck.
New: this season the concerts will be held alternately on weekdays and Sundays. In Antwerp, the Sunday formula offers the perfect musical aperitif. In Ghent, you can stay for lunch at our next-door neighbours Cafe Theatre.
