New Year’s Concert — Brussels Philharmonic & Marc Bouchkov


  • 15.00 Concertzaal
  • 16.25 Expected end time


Classics from the King of the Waltz and great Russian masters, such as Shostakovich, Glinka and Khachaturian

As is traditional, the Concertgebouw opens the New Year with a whirl of dance music. Besides the classics of the uncrowned 'King of the Waltz', Johann Strauss Jnr., the waltzes of Russian masters, such as Shostakovich, Glinka and Katchaturian, naturally also feature in this Russian-tinted season. This eminently dashing and danceable music evokes dance tunes, drinking parties and merry festivity. Star of the day is the born musician Marc Bouchkov - a finalist of the Queen Elisabeth Competition - the youngest offspring of a family of eminent Russian violinists. He unleashes all of his devils and treats us to heavenly, virtuosic music. Let yourself be swept away by lively rhythms and melodies and experience the start of 2015 in a joyous euphoria! Cheers! After the concert, Concertgebouw Brugge and Renaat Landuyt, the Mayor of Bruges, invite you to toast the New Year.
