During two festival weekends at Flagey, together with the flamboyant conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and top pianist Boris Giltburg, we will showcase Rachmaninov's four piano concertos. Alongside the concerts, we've packed each day with thrilling extra activities in and around Flagey.

And there's more Rachmaninov to come: the Vlaams Radiokoor will kick off on Thursday, October 6, with the Vespers in the beautiful La Cambre Abbey. The young talent of Brussels Young Philharmonic will present their own Rach-concert in Studio 1 on November 11 & 12, and Cineflagey will feature special films with Rachmaninov's music in the spotlight.

Brussels Philharmonic will also create an authentic festival atmosphere at Flagey! Relax before and after the concert in our piano bar, delve into the details of the concertos during the Rachmaninov Deconstructed piano lectures, engage in post-concert discussions with Boris and Giancarlo in our BruPhil Café during the aftertalks, or register your team and put your knowledge to the test on Sunday, November 12, during our one-of-a-kind Rachmaninov Festival Quiz - hosted by Bent Van Looy, who is also the host of the concerts.
