Facebook event Share Tweet

Brussels classical ensemble presents its own work for the first time

As a result of the extra measures announced yesterday by the Brussels Government, AB will close its doors until November 19th 2020.

We are very concerned about the situation and do not want to challenge the new measures. We understand that the alarming corona numbers come with drastic measures. It is obvious that our activities must also give way to public health at a certain point in time.

All concerts until November 19th will be suspended and rescheduled where possible. We have mobilized the entire team and are working hard to find the best solution for each event. Individual concerts may be postponed or canceled. If a concert is postponed, any tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. If a concert is canceled, all tickets will be automatically refunded

We are closely monitoring the situation and communicating any updates ASAP through our website. All buyers will be informed about changes to their event through email.

We would ask everyone to refrain from calling or e-mailing us for further updates. Please check our website for the latest information on your concert.

Finally, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and wish everyone love in the time of Corona.


This is an 'ABnormal' concert. During these concerts, wearing a mask is mandatory and only bubbles of 1 and 2 people can be seated.What if you want to come with 3 people? You buy I duo bubble and 1 solo bubble. One of your friends will be sitting alone on the balcony. Same goes for all odd numbers.

You can read more about the ABnormal safety measures here.

The bond between AB and Echo Collective is now unbreakable. This collaboration was kicked off with a commissioned work in which AB requested that Radiohead’s ‘Amnesiac’ (from ‘01) – the younger brother of the contrary ‘Kid A’ – be made to sound like a classical masterpiece. Then they were invited to collaborate with Joep Beving and Blixa Bargeld. Plus, just prior to his passing, Jóhann Jóhannsson asked them to perform and record his recent work.

To top it all off, Berlin label !K7 (see: things such as the artist-curated series LateNightTales with the likes of The Cinematic Orchestra, BadBadNotGood, Jon Hopkins,...) courted them into releasing an album full of their own  compositions for the first time. The penetrating result is titled ‘The Sea Within’ and you can hear it in its entirety on this evening.
