Brahms Chamber Music Festival

Saturday 18 December & Sunday 19 December

Together with Antwerp and international musicians, the Taurus Quartet presents an anthology from the powerful chamber music oeuvre of Johannes Brahms. In order to do justice to Brahms’ impressive oeuvre, the Taurus Quartet has invited Antwerp, Belgian and international guests.

The Antwerp chamber choir “Camerata Waelrant” Led by Marleen De Boo will perform intimate choral works.

The Antwerp pianist Nikolaas Kende and violinist Jolente De Maeyer, who form a duo together, are joined by the Dutch cellist Johan Van Iersel (soloist of the Concertgebouw orchestra) and the Finnish altoist Lilli Maijala.

The audience will be taken along from special string quartets to the imposing sextets and fiery quintets.

A unique opportunity to experience an intimate portrait of a powerful composer.
