- Egmont Overture

- Markus Groh
The Brussels Philharmonic has performed with leading conductors and soloists and, in the course of its existence, has created new works by world-famous composers such as Stravinsky, Messiaen and Francesconi. Since 2008, Music Director Michel Tabachnik has been a key figure, combining the great orchestral repertoire with music from the 20th century.
Consistently cited for his ‘sound imagination’ with his playing praised as ‘impeccable’ (The Guardian), Markus Groh has confirmed his place among the finest pianists in the world today. For this concert he performs Bartók’s Piano Concerto No.3, written at the end of the composer’s life, perhaps reflected in the more serene and lyrical nature of the work.
