From foxtrot to lullaby: Kazushi Ono, Brussels Philharmonic’s new music director, will take you into a musical Alice in Wonderland dream world. A concert that starts where a raving party ends (to the swinging tones of John Adams’ The Chairman Dances), catapulting you straight from the dance floor deep into dreamland – where Henri Dutilleux, Toru Takemitsu and George Benjamin take the helm of this alternative world. Music that makes you dream
– and dreams that become music.

«Je ne rêve jamais qu’une ou deux fois l’année,
jamais plus, mes nuits sont noires,
mes jours sont pleins de sens,
je ne rêve jamais qu’au milieu du jour.
Je rêve par métier.”
