During two festival weekends at Flagey, together with Boris Giltburg, we will be highlighting Rachmaninov’s four piano concertos, each accompanied by a piece from a composer who shared a special connection with him.

In addition to these performances, we have plenty of exciting activities planned at and around Flagey every day. For instance, the Vlaams Radiokoor will open the festival with the impressive Vespers at the breathtaking Abbey of La Cambre.
