The Lavergne Manuscript

The Lavergne manuscript is from now on free accessible, as an online facsimile or as download as a PDF. This manuscript, named after the former owner, the violinist Josette Lavergne, is a sketchbook by Eugène Ysaÿe. This autograph was donated to the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel – School of Arts Erasmus University College . Particularly fascinating is that the sketchbook contains a hitherto unknown sonata for solo violin unfortunately unfinished.

The choice of Rossini.

Rossini made a far-reaching choice in 1829: he stopped composing operas. Extremely amazing as he was only 37 and at the top of this fame. 

It is now 150 years ago that the Italian maestro passed away. This is an ideal opportunity for the Conservatory to bring its unique Rossini heritage collection into the limelight.

The theme of the Heritage Day of 22 April 2018 is 'Choose'. Logical that the Conservatory chooses Rossini.

What do we offer?

  • Concerts of 30' with music by Rossini at 11.30 am, 2.30 and 5 pm with soprano Florencia Molinero, mezzo Victorina Eeckeloo and pianist Jelena Pisec.
