Earthly paradise, a romantic idyll, true love: this is the beginning of the programme. From Strauss’ symphonic birthday present for his wife to the sorrow and homesickness of Takemitsu, in his typically strange style uniting Japanese tradition and western innovation.
With Vaughan Williams’ lark, dark clouds threaten and the mood becomes gloomy. Yoshimatsu mourns the nearly extinct toki or Japanese crested ibis, and Richard Strauss ends with the death of an artist.
Before enjoying the concert with Brussels Philharmonic at night, you can join a fascinating town tour in Brussels with a guide from Korei.
