Concertini 2018–19 :: © © Nancy Fouts

‘Concertino’ is the diminutive of ‘concert’ or ‘concerto’. A ‘small format’ that relates playfully to the opera house’s ‘big’ programme. The complete Beethoven symphonies in La Monnaie’s concert series will be reflected in our chamber music too: there will be plenty of Beethoven this season, including several earlier and sometimes rarely performed works. In other concerts, the musicians will be looking for adventure: every facet of the 19th-century Italian repertoire, a dash of US minimalist music to mark the premiere of Mark Grey’s Frankenstein, chamber music and songs by Meyerbeer, concerts related to Tristan und Isolde and, to round it all off, Russian chamber music to complement our production of The Tale of Tsar Saltan. The Concertini series will also continue its association with a number of La Monnaie projects that aim to offer young singers a platform.
