The Belgian National Orchestra has acquired a special place in the cultural world. In the choice of its programmes, the emphasis is placed on prestigious and innovative works, but also on the discovery of lesser-known scores. In doing so, the Belgian National Orchestra maintains a fascinating dialogue with a varied audience. The orchestra is conducted by the American conductor Hugh Wolff, with Hans Waege as intendant and BOZAR as privileged partner.
World-renowned soloists are attracted to the concept. Vilde Frang, Gidon Kremer and Rolando Villazón are among them. Just as the pop-rock artist Ozark Henry inspires the future generation with his innovative impulses.
This season the Belgian National Orchestra welcomes soloists such as Daniel Lozakovich, Victor Julien-Laferrière, Paul Lewis, Sophie Karthäuser and Colin Currie. Guest conductors include Ian Page, Cristian Măcelaru and Hartmut Haenchen. These are all great talents that you are welcome to come and meet them.
