Concert : On the Trail of Anna Boch - 6 p.m.
A musician 'pur sang' herself - she was an excellent pianist - Anna Boch organised musical evenings at her home. These 'intimate concerts' took place in a perfect setting thanks to the presence of visual art. Anna Boch had an eye for both established names - biggest names came to her house - and young new emerging talent. She also often played together with other artists.
The Brussels vocal ensemble Aziliz, conducted by Judith Sepulchre, performs works by composers who were invited by her cousin lawyer-writer Octave Maus to Anna Boch at a meeting of 'Les Vingt'. Travel back in time and soak up the sounds of the 19th century with composers Vincent D'Indy, Gabriel Fauré, Ernest Chausson, Claude Debussy...
As the museum space can accommodate 100 people, the concert will be performed twice: at 18:00 and at 20:00. The ticket allows you to visit the exhibition Anna Boch. An Impressionist Journey ( the first group until 19:45 - the second group until 21:45).
