It will not be possible to fill a stage with 80 musicians performing together on strings and wind instruments just yet. But never fear! We have invited all the large Belgian orchestras to perform their core repertoire at the Festival with an adapted line-up. In this anniversary year, no fewer than all nine symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven are on the programme.
For the popular sixth symphony, the ‘Pastoral’, members of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra also work with an septet by William Watts. Just as with the fourth, the arrangement is for a string sextet with the addition of a flute, which opens up an entirely new colour palette.
With the platform Sound of Ghent, a number of Ghent culture houses are joining forces to create a varied online concert programme.
