Seasons-2.jpg

Brussels Muzieque and Full Circle cordially invite you to an evening of profound resonance, where the timeless strains of Vivaldi's Four Seasons are interwoven with a thought-provoking discourse on climate change. Each of the four seasons will be brought to life by a distinct virtuoso soloist from Brussels' major orchestras, alternating their roles within the string septet ensemble: "Spring" by Sylvia Huang (concertmaster at Brussels' opera 'La Monnaie/De Munt'), "Autumn" by Nadja Nevolovitsch (leader of the 1st violins at Brussels Philharmonic), "Winter" by Sarah Oates (concertmaster at Ballet Amsterdam, based in Belgium), "Summer" by Misako Akama (concertmaster at Belgian National Orchestra). This captivating ensemble will be complemented by the artistry of Monika Mlynarczyk and Marc Terré, respectively co-principal viola and solo double-bass soloists at Brussels Opera 'La Monnaie/De Munt, and Eduardo Tonietto, cellist and Artistic Director of Brussels Muzieque.

However, this event goes beyond captivating melodies. It converges seamlessly with a thought-provoking conference on climate change, where Philippa Nuttall - an experienced editor, journalist, and climate change writer - will share her insights. This convergence will set the stage for an unforgettable musical journey and a reflective dialogue on our planet's pressing challenges.

This concert resonates with the outstanding talent of four accomplished female violin soloists from Brussels' and Amsterdam's premier orchestras. Through their artistry, we aspire to channel our collective energies toward raising awareness about climate change and inspiring sustainable practices for a greener future.

TRIO.jpg

Brussels Muzieque welcomes you to this joyous occasion, where we come together to recognize and applaud the remarkable contributions of female musicians to the world of classical music presented in the beautiful hall of Brussels Royal Conservatoire (KCB). Through the masterful compositions of Amy Beach, Mel Bonis, and Cécile Chaminade, we revel in the creative brilliance that transcends gender and speaks to the universality of musical expression.

The history of classical music is replete with exceptional composers, and this chosen repertoire sheds light on the often underrepresented and unfairly overlooked achievements of women during the Romantic era. These three gifted composers – Amy Beach, Mel Bonis, and Cécile Chaminade – confronted unique challenges, yet their indelible marks on the musical landscape stand as testaments to their sheer talent and unwavering dedication.

As we marvel at the seamless interplay of violin, cello, and piano – deftly guided by the Belgian sisters, both recent laureates of the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Sylvia Huang (violin) and Stephanie Huang (cello), along with the Lithuanian concert pianist Monika Dars – we celebrate the rich tapestry of talent that graces the stage today. Their performances reflect not only their artistic prowess but also the progress being made toward fostering a more inclusive and egalitarian music community.

STRING QUINTETS
EUROPEAN PARLIEMENT 22 MAY 2022
 

Welcome to another collaboration of the Citizens' Garden Concerts of the European Parliament of Brussels and the Brussels Muzieque platform. This concert will be a special occasion since it is the opening event of the Citizens' Garden concert 2023 season.
Reminding that EU parliament concerts have free entrance; we just recommend arriving early enough to grant a seat.
--------------------

Composed in September of 1828, during the final weeks of Schubert's life, the String Quintet in C for two violins, viola and two cellos was the composer's last instrumental work and ranks among his greatest accomplishments. Schubert's decision to use a second cello, rather than the second viola (characteristic of earlier quintets), adds to the overall richness of the piece, contributing to a texture richer in the low and mid registers.

Schubert's writing for this string quintet is in fact symphonic, revealing touches of "orchestration" that would have been assigned to winds and brass in one of his symphonies. In doing that, he revolutionized the art of writing for strings. He created sounds that no one had ever created before in a small string ensemble, constantly varying the texture as he did it. There are vast changes of light and color in the piece, as well as great harmonic variation.

Enjoy this absolute masterpiece of the Early Romantic period, brought to you by Sylvia Huang (laureate at the Queen Elisabeth competition violin and concertmaster of La Monnaie/De Munt opera), Misako Akama (concertmaster at the Belgian National Orchestra), Monika Mlynarczyk (co-principal viola at La Monnaie/De Munt), Stéphanie Huang (laureate at the Queen Elisabeth competition cello) and Eduardo Tonietto (cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque). 

CLARINET TRIOS
ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE 17 MAY 2023 19h

Maura Marinucci and Nadja Nevolovitsch - respectively solo clarinet and leader of the 1st violins of Brussels Philharmonic and concert pianist based in Brussels Monika Dars will perform Milhaud's Suite Op. 157b, a trio piece renowned for its use of rhythm and melody, and its incorporation of jazz elements.

Clarinetist Maura Marinucci will then take the stage to perform Brahms' Sonata op 120, with its beautiful and lyrical first movement. The program continues with Bruch's selection of three pieces from his '8 Pieces' Op.83, showcasing the composer's lyrical and Romantic style.

Pianist Monika Dars will then perform Liszt's 'Sonetto 104 del Petrarca,' a powerful and emotional piece that highlights the virtuosity of the performer. The concert will conclude with Stravinsky's 'Histoire du Soldat,' a landmark work in the genre of chamber music.

Join us for this unforgettable evening of music, as these three remarkable musicians bring to life some of the most memorable works in the classical repertoire.

This concert is part of the musIICa series, presented in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels and Brussels Muzieque.

PIANO TRIOS
ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE 27 APRIL 2023 19h

Brussels Muzieque in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute presents a concert featuring Lily Maisky - concert pianist based in Brussels, Misako Akama - concertmaster of the Belgian National Orchestra, and Eduardo Tonietto - cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque. The program features two of the most prominent piano trios in the classical repertoire: Brahms Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op. 101, and Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67.

Brahms's Piano Trio No. 3, written in 1886, is considered one of the composer's most intimate works, combining his signature romanticism with a classical form. On the other hand, Shostakovich's Piano Trio No. 2, composed in 1944, reflects the turmoil and tragedy of the 20th century, showcasing the composer's mastery of intense and dramatic expression.

The juxtaposition of these two works offers a unique perspective on the evolution of the piano trio genre and highlights the distinct musical languages of these two great composers. This concert is a rare opportunity to experience the beauty and depth of these masterpieces: don't miss this unforgettable music evening!

Join us on a musical journey as we present a program of classical masterpieces like you've never heard before! Four musicians, all with Italian roots and based in Brussels, will be taking the stage to perform a vibrant program featuring an unusual combination of wind instruments and cello. Matteo Del Monte and Antonio Capolupo - respectively - solo flutist and solo clarinetist of Brussels's Opera La Monnaie, Gordon Fantini - solo bassoonist of the Belgian National Orchestra, and Eduardo Tonietto - cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque, will be showcasing this unique instrumental combination.

The concert will feature the premiere of a special arrangement of Rossini's "William Tell" overture, created especially for the Unorthodox Quartet by Irish-Italian composer Paul Pellay. In addition to this exciting premiere, the ensemble will perform Beethoven's first string quartet in F major and Mozart's Divertimento in D major, both expertly transcribed for this unorthodox ensemble.

They will be bringing this program to Brussels in March, taking the stage at Le Baixu (March 5th) and the Italian Cultural Center (March 7th).

PIANO SOPRANO CLARINET TRIOS
LE BAIXU 24 FEBRUARY 2023, 20h

FEB24.jpg

Brussels Muzieque presents an evening of Romanticism with a special ensemble featuring three of the most renowned composers of the Romantic period. Déborah Salazar (soprano), Daniel Mourek (clarinet soloist of Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen), and Monika Dars (concert pianist), will bring to life masterpieces by Schubert, Schumann, and Brahms.

Starting with Der Hirt auf dem Felsen by Schubert, this piece showcases the powerful combination of soprano and clarinet, creating a rich and evocative soundscape. This beautiful lied, or song, is a perfect example of Schubert's masterful use of melody and harmony, and is sure to leave a lasting impression on the audience.

Next, Drei Fantasiestücke by Schumann is a duo for clarinet and piano that showcases the virtuosic abilities of both instruments. These three fantasies are full of dynamic contrasts, unexpected twists, and virtuosic solos, showcasing the composers' innovative and imaginative approach to music.

Frauenliebe und Leben, another piece by Schumann, is a set of lieder, or songs, that tells the story of a woman's love and life. The songs are beautiful, poignant, and deeply emotional, showcasing the soprano's vocal range and lyrical abilities.

Finally, Zwei Gesänge op. 91 by Brahms is a trio for soprano, clarinet, and piano that demonstrates the composers' mastery of chamber music. This beautiful piece is full of delicate interplay between the three instruments, creating a rich tapestry of sound that is sure to captivate and enthrall the audience.

With works like Der Hirt auf dem Felsen by Schubert, Drei Fantasiestücke by Schumann, Frauenliebe und Leben by Schumann, and Zwei Gesänge op. 91 by Brahms, the trio will showcase the unique blend of their instruments and the beauty of lyricism.

STRING QUINTETS
FULL CIRCLE 22 JANUARY 2022
 

Composed in September of 1828, during the final weeks of Schubert's life, the String Quintet in C for two violins, viola and two cellos was the composer's last instrumental work and ranks among his greatest accomplishments. Schubert's decision to use a second cello, rather than the second viola (characteristic of earlier quintets), adds to the overall richness of the piece, contributing to a texture richer in the low and mid registers.

Schubert's writing for this string quintet is in fact symphonic, revealing touches of "orchestration" that would have been assigned to winds and brass in one of his symphonies. In doing that, he revolutionized the art of writing for strings. He created sounds that no one had ever created before in a small string ensemble, constantly varying the texture as he did it. There are vast changes of light and color in the piece, as well as great harmonic variation.

Brussels Muzieque presents a new original transcript for string quintet of the Allegretto of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7. The Allegretto was encored at the premiere of the seventh symphony of Beethoven, a huge success in itself, and the movement remained popular since. Eduardo Tonietto, Artistic Director of Brussels Muzieque, made the transcript of this famous orchestral work for the string quintet setting.
Enjoy these 2 absolute masterpieces of the Early Romantic period, brought to you by Sylvia Huang (laureate at the Queen Elisabeth competition violin), Misako Akama (concertmaster at the Belgian National Orchestra), Monika Mlynarczyk (co-principal viola at La Monnaie/De Munt), Stéphanie Huang (laureate at the Queen Elisabeth competition cello) and Eduardo Tonietto (cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque).

STRING QUARTETS (for 2 cellos)
FULL CIRCLE 18 DECEMBER 2022

Brussels Muzieque invites you to a musical evening out of the usual canon.

This concert features chamber music’s most canonic formation, the string quartet; however this time, in the highly unconventional setting of violin, viola and… two cellos!

Let yourself be surprised by the string quartet no.2 in A minor by Anton Arenski in this unusual instrumentation. It gives the quartet a special emphasis around the mid and low frequencies, that dark but warm timbre reminiscent of Franz Schubert's string quintet for two cellos.

Adding to this concert’s unique repertoire, Belgian composer and Brussels Muzieque’s composer-in-residence Walter Hus has contributed another rare composition for this peculiar ensemble: an adaptation of his string quartet “Five to Five”, where one of the two cellos performs in place of the original viola.

To finish off the program, Maurice Ravel’s sonata for violin and cello makes the cello the protagonist once again. In almost all the duos for violin and cello written before Ravel’s, the violin predominates because of its higher register, and the cello is mainly used as an accompanying instrument. Not so with Ravel in this duo; the two instruments are truly equal partners by giving each of them an independent and equally important melodic line.

Misako Akama (concertmaster at the Belgian National Orchestra), Monika Mlynarczyk (co-principal viola at La Monnaie/De Munt), Dmitry Silvian (solo cello at the Belgian National Orchestra), and Eduardo Tonietto (cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque) will brighten a dark winter night with the warm timbre of these masterpieces.

This concert has the financial support of the subsidies of Féderation Wallonie-Bruxelles and the sponsorship of Delen Private Bank.

HARP FLUTE VIOLA TRIOS
ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE 11 JANUARY 2022
 

Dream away with us this evening. Brussels Muzieque has concocted a musical impressionist gift.
 
Just like the impressionist painters Monet, Manet and Degas opposed conventions armed with vibrant colours and short, quick brushstrokes, so did Claude Debussy break the musical mould of his time. His dreamy and sensual compositions with short melodic motives and unique instrumental timbres make for a music with no hard edges. It feels unrooted in time. 

Brussels Muzieque’s concert features Debussy’s Sonata for flute, viola, and harp. A very uncommon setting for those times. It gained, however, immediate popularity thanks to its colorful bright sound. Such instrument combination inspired many other composers of the 20th century, such as Arnold Bax with his Elegiac Trio. Strikingly, both compositions were created in the wake of dramatic events (WWI for Debussy’s Sonata and the Eastern rising in Ireland for Bax’s Elegiac Trio), which becomes evident in the melancholy and veiled sadness that runs through these works.
 
To continue, Matteo Del Monte (solo flute at the Brussels Opera House ‘La Monnaie/De Munt’), Monika Mlynarczyk (co-principal viola at the Brussels Opera House ‘La Monnaie/De Munt’) and Emma Wauters (harp professor at Leuven LUCA school of arts) will also bring to the stage a Sonata from Nino Rota, Italian composer world-famous for his film scores (Fellini, Visconti and Coppola), and a transcript of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet by Gilad Cohen.

 

STRING TRIOS
LE BAIXU 10 DECEMBER 2022
 

Brussels Muzieque and Le Baixu invite you to this special concert marking the start of their collaboration.

In this program, Nadja Nevolovitch - leader of the 1st violins at Brussels Philharmonic, Monika Młynarczykco-principal viola at Opera 'La Monnaie/De Munt' and Eduardo Tonietto - cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque, will perform the well known Schubert trio in Bb major and present to the public the less known Hungarian composer Dohnányi Ernő, performing his "Serenade" for string trio, and the string trio by Polish-Jewish composer Weinberg as well. 

FLUTE QUARTETS
FULL CIRCLE 20 NOVEMBER 2022
 

Immerse yourself in a revived performance of the once acclaimed flute quartet ensemble, in this original concert by Brussels Muzieque.

The flute quartet setting - comprising a flute, violin, viola and cello - reached the pinnacle of success in the second half of the 18th century, to the extent that it even rivaled the popularity of the string quartet at that time. Its success brought many famous composers including Mozart, Haydn and Bach to explore this instrumentation; however, as from the 19th century, the flute quartet completely lost its popularity to the string quartet once again and virtually no compositions were written for it until the 20th century.

The beauty of combining flute and strings should not be forgotten, therefore Brussels Muzieque has assembled an accomplished team of musicians to bring the uniqueness of the flute quartet back to life, and back to you.

Aldo Baerten (principal flutist in the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra), Jacqueline Preys (Principal 2nd violins at the Belgian National Orchestra), Monika Mlynarczyk (co-principal viola La Monnaie/De Munt), and David Poskin (laureate at the David Popper Cello Competition) will revive the music for flute quartet by performing works from its high days by Haydn and J. C. Bach and by presenting some more recent work from the 20th century for flute and strings by Van Gilse and Roussel.

This concert has the financial support of the subsidies of Féderation Wallonie-Bruxelles.

PIANO BASSOON DUO
FULL CIRCLE 12 OCTOBER 2022
 

You might have enjoyed many times the bucolic color of a bassoon solo during a symphonic performance, as in Stravinsky's Sacre du Printemps opening, or even within a wind quintet; however, experiencing a recital where the sole companion of this unique instrument will be his fellow pianist, will dive you in a whole new universe of sounds and characters that only such a combination can provide.
In this recital, romantics such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, impressionists and symbolists such as Saint-Saens and Scriabin, among other great composers will be presented to you by pianist Lily Maisky and bassoonist Mavroudes Troullos, who will take you through this journey exploring the Bassoon's expression and virtuosity combined with the monumental presence and versatility of the piano.

This concert has the financial support of the subsidies of Féderation Wallonie-Bruxelles.

Season 2021 - 2022

CHAMBER JAZZ CONSORT
FULL CIRCLE 5 JULY 2022

Multiple award winner jazz violinist Oene van Geel will be joining the ensemble and sharing the stage with three other classical string players: Sarah Oates - concertmaster of the London Philharmonia, Maeva Laroque - co-principal of 2nd violins in the Brussels Opera 'La Monnaie' and Eduardo Tonietto - cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque.
