Cffor: Saariaho & talbot

These days Brussels Philharmonic remains ‘true to its roots’ and performs a varied and diverse repertoire. Keeping this clear focus on today’s and tomorrow’s symphonic music, music director Stéphane Denève joined the orchestra to launch the new platform CffOR about symphonic compositions as from 2000.

On March 28 & 29, Brussels Philharmonic performs not one, but two CffOR works: Asteroid 4179: Toutatis (2005) by Kaija Saariaho and Worlds, Stars, Systems, Infinity (2012) by Joby Talbot. Both pieces are inspired by The Planets by Gustav Holst.
