coronavirus? a reboot for society
Supernova, the competition for young Belgian chamber music ensembles, was won last February by Trio Aries (Alice Van Leuven, Paul Heyman, Wouter Valvekens) and the Desguin Kwartet (Wolfram Van Mechelen, Ludovic Bataillie, Rhea Vanhellemont, Pieter-Jan De Smet). The winners’ concert was scheduled for the final day of Klarafestival 2020 but was cancelled due to the coronavirus measures. In the run-up to Klarafestival 2021, we invited the two ensembles for an online chat.
Desguin Kwartet — Claude Debussy
At the start of December, we invited the Desguin Quartet to perform the second movement of Debussy's famous String Quartet in G minor at Flagey's Studio 2.

The end of turbulent 2020 is near. Chantal Pattyn (Klara) and Joost Fonteyne (Klarafestival) reflect forward: “es ist noch nicht alles verloren!” With this adage in mind, we are working on programming Klarafestival 2021 during these highly unpredictable times.
We live in unpredictable times. Klarafestival, however, will take place in 2021, starting March 13!
