Cathedral of Our Lady
Thu 20.06.24

The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra heads to Antwerp’s Cathedral of Our Lady for a programme that highlights the building’s superb acoustics. Against the backdrop of Rubens’s majestic altarpieces, you get to enjoy music inspired by the works of other master painters: On a landscape by Turner by the Belgian composer Jacqueline Fontyn and Ottorino Respighi’s Botticelli triptych. The majestic cathedral vaults will also resonate to the sound of the Romanza for violin and orchestra by Antwerp composer Flor Alpaerts. Finally, the orchestra will conjure up a seascape with Britten’s Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia. An atmospheric encounter of creative minds in a unique setting!
