Harvey Curates Festival in Antwerp's deSingel

Harvey Curates Festival in Antwerp's deSingel

Jonathan Harvey’s music enjoys an enormously high profile in Belgium; it is regularly programmed at the Ars Musica festival in Brussels, his opera Inquest of Love was staged by Théâtre de la Monnaie, and he enjoys a close relationship with Belgium’s leading new music ensemble, Ictus.

Belgian attention turned to Antwerp in October this year when he curates, and is featured at, the music @ venture festival at DeSingel. Highpoints include the premiere of a revised version of his Cello Concerto, plus the Second Quartet, String Trio, Song Offerings and the Serenade (in Homage to Mozart).
