Dear Sir/Madam, friend of the BPO
The BRUSSELS PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA will host its next concert, "A tribute to Verdi, Britten and Wagner", on 25 April 2014. Verdi with his timeless melodies, often so popular that people still hum them today. Wagner with "Tristan and Isolde", which is behind Lars von Trier's film Melancholia's emotive power. And finally, Britten who's centenary we recently celebrated, with a youthful piece full of freshness. Three very different horizons of uninterrupted music, guaranteeing our shared pleasure.
||Tristan and Isolde (Prelude and "Liebestod")
