In recent months, family ties have become especially meaningful. While musician colleagues were often obliged to stay apart for months, musical brothers, sisters, fathers, daughters, mothers, sons and partners were able to keep on playing together. Flanders Festival Ghent is inviting a series of musical families to perform: leading musicians who share both biological and musical DNA. This promises to be a colourful series of concerts that cuts across genres and musical history.
A taste of what’s to come!
On 30 September the married couple and piano duo Mephisto will demonstrate how four hands feel as though they’re being guided by a single mind. And on 01 Oktober, the well-known Swedish mezzo soprano Anne-Sofie Von Otter will be unleashing her angelic voice alongside her son Fabian Fredriksson (electric guitar) in the renovated Bijloke.
