Luc Brewaeys – The Whisky Tour
In November 2019, deSingel Antwerp (BE) will be raising a glass to the internationally respected Flemish composer Luc Brewaeys who died far too young in 2015. Brewaeys had long dreamt of journeying to Scotland to visit the distilleries of his favourite single malt whiskies, which several of his works are named after. He never made the trip. Together with Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, I SOLISTI, HERMESensemble, ChampdAction and the Royal Antwerp Conservatoire, deSingel now presents Brewaeys’ “whisky works” in a concentrated week of concerts. MATRIX New Music Centre will complement the concert series with a pop-up exhibition on the life and works of Brewaeys. An ode to one of our greatest composers.
