45 minutes in 1939

45 minutes in 1939

For two years now, the TetraCelli cello quartet of Brussels has been introducing audiences to musical works for which, in certain cases, it owns the only manuscripts. All of the pieces were written by Belgian composers for a Belgian quartet between 1934 and 1939. The performance of this unique intangible heritage in the drawing room at the van Buuren Museum will provide visitors with the opportunity to enjoy original and previously unheard pieces of music from a former time.
The music will breathe life into the rooms and the exclusively Art Deco works of art and furniture, taking visitors back to the world of middle class society in the 1930s. The concert will serve as a spellbinding accompaniment as the audience members stroll through the garden and museum. In addition to a brief presentation of the project and the performance of the musical works (by Jongen, Van Eechaute and Del Pueyo), the musicians and museum staff will be on hand to answer any questions from visitors.

A partnership between the non-profit association KaBelA for the TetraCelli cello quartet of Brussels and the van Buuren Museum and Gardens.
