The Flagey Piano Days have become a regular event: for five days, Flagey features the piano non-stop.

For the 2019 edition, the Brussels Philharmonic has invited the rising star Rafał Blechacz, who will perform Mozart's 23rd Piano Concerto. The work is often considered one of his most intimate and expressive works.

This is followed by the grandiose Third Symphony by Mendelssohn, inspired by the beauty of Scottish nature, which made a deep impression on him.

Due to illness, Tadaaki Otaka will be replaced by Kensho Watanabe
