20 september 2021 - TRACES is back!

After the long period of solitude, TRACES is back, starting the 2021/22 season with an invitation to a concert-lecture exploring the heritage of Eugène Ysaÿe. We will invite you to discover a newly discovered, never published work of his, whose beauty can only equal the importance it had for the composer (he seems to have worked at it over several decades). The programme will also include works by Guillaume Lekeu, Camille Saint-Saëns and Ernest Chausson.
