Day ticket: 45 EURO upon selection of all Prokofjev Challenge concerts you will automatically be allocated the day ticket.


Taurus Quartet

Prokofjev’s String Quartet nr. 1 is a premiere for the young Belgian Taurus Quartet. However, the work fits in perfectly in their thorough exploration of the main string quartet repertory works. With their refined performance of works of a.o. Sjostakovitsj, Borodin, Enescu and Janáček they’ve certainly proved their mastery of the Slavic flair.
