Biography
Founded in 1936, the Belgian National Orchestra, previously known as the National Orchestra of Belgium, has a special partnership with BOZAR. From 2012 to 2017, the orchestra’s principal conductor was Andrey Boreyko. Since September 2017, the US conductor Hugh Wolff has been at the helm. The Belgian National Orchestra has performed with renowned soloists such as Vadim Repin, Gidon Kremer, Boris Berezovsky, and Rolando Villazón, as well as with many talented younger musicians. It is also keen to attract a new generation of audiences and takes part in innovative projects such as a collaboration with the pop-rock artist Ozark Henry and participation in the Tomorrowland festival. This season sees the orchestra share the stage with eminent soloists such as Sergey Khachatryan, Nelson Freire, Elisabeth Kulman, Alexander Gavrylyuk, and Lorenzo Gatto, as well as a number of guest conductors, including Kazushi Ono and Hartmut Haenchen. Its discography, which has for the most part been released on the Fuga Libera label, has won worldwide acclaim and includes six recordings made under its former conductor Walter Weller.
