Biography
Musicians of the orchestra (final cello 2017 - pdf)

The Brussels Philharmonic was founded in 1935 by the Belgian public broadcaster (NIR/INR). Over the years, the orchestra has performed with many top conductors and soloists. It enjoys an excellent reputation for performing premieres of new works and has collaborated with world-renowned composers such as Bartók, Stravinsky, Messiaen and Francesconi. The orchestra’s historic home port is the Flagey building, where it rehearses and performs in Studio 4, in acoustic terms one of the top concert halls in the world.

As of 2015, Stéphane Denève is the music director of the Brussels Philharmonic. This top French conductor comes to Brussels with a clear mission : he designs his programmes combining 21st century music with the great classics, thereby opening up a dialogue between the repertoire of the past and that of the future. The new platform that Denève and the Brussels Philharmonic are launching will play an important role in this regard : CffOR (Centre for Future Orchestral Repertoire) is seeking to collect core information about symphonic compositions since the year 2000, and thus to initiate a broad international dialogue about compositions that will withstand the test of time.

At the international level, the Brussels Philharmonic has made a name for itself, with regular appearances in the major European capitals (including Paris, London, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg). The international representation by IMG Touring brings further tours and concerts in amongst others Japan and the USA.

Another speciality for which the Brussels Philharmonic has gained an international reputation is film music. For the performance and recording of soundtracks it regularly partners with Galaxy Studios and Film Fest Gent. International recognition has come, among others, in the form of the Oscarwinning score for ‘The Artist’ (music by Ludovic Bource). Besides its ground-breaking initiatives under way, including a spin-off for film music, the establishment of a foundation for the purchase of string instruments (with Puilaetco Dewaay Private Bankers), and more recently the Tax Shelter, the orchestra embraces innovation in every area and all levels of its activities.

Along with various partners, the Brussels Philharmonic is working on a number of award winning CD series : one with Klara involving Flemish soloists, another with the Palazzetto Bru Zane and conductor Hervé Niquet focused on French Romantic music, and still another with Film Fest Gent devoted to great film music composers. With its own label, Brussels Philharmonic Recordings, the orchestra is issuing reference recordings of the great symphonic repertoire. Recently, Deutsche Grammophon has released a recording of 21st century music by Guillaume Connesson under the baton of Stéphane Denève which also has gained international acclaim (CHOC Classica de l’année 2016 and Diapason d’Or de l’année 2016).

The Brussels Philharmonic is an institution of the Flemish Community.
