Concert 1 - Ouverture / 20:00

“Resonances waltzes in Namur!”

For the first time in many years, the opening concert of the Festival will not take place in the barn of Halloy, but in the Grand Manège in Namur!

The program opens with a beautiful string quintet by Mozart. Ravel’s Waltz is heard here in a magnificent arrangement by Tim Mulleman for a nonet of strings. Chausson’s enchanting ‘Chanson perpétuelle’ leads us for the first time to the central composer of this festival; Gabriel Fauré’s piano quartet closes this concert.

Attention: this concert is not included in the Festival Pass. Ticket sales for this concert are via the Grote Manege website in the link below.
