Casco Phil will be accompanying the stars of the Brussels Cello Festival during this festive gala evening.

In the wonderful acoustic of the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels, artistic director Han Bin Yoon organises a biennial festival showcasing the warm tenor tones of the stringed instrument. During this third edition of the festival, Casco Phil will be the musical partner for a varied programme of symphonic cello music. Iconic cellist Gary Hoffman will play Bruch’s masterpiece Kol Nidrei, while the Queen Elisabeth Laureate Hayoung Choi will guide the audience through a less known work, La Muse et le Poète. Anne Gastinel will present a Belgian masterpiece with Ysaÿes’ Meditation while David Cohen – Principal cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra – joins us for the Saint-Saëns’ Concerto in A minor.

An unmissable evening featuring highlights of the cello repertoire.
