The Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain is exceptionally closed on Thursday 20 June. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you from Friday 21 June, until 8 September for the visit of the exhibition Josef and Anni Albers.

The Boghossian Foundation is delighted to welcome baritone Taehan Kim, winner of the 2023 Queen Elisabeth Competition, for an exceptional evening. Accompanied by pianist Philippe Riga, the virtuoso will perform a programme combining works by European and Korean composers, from Maurice Ravel to Dongsu Shin and Hakjoon Yoon, via Francis Poulenc, Richard Strauss, Franz Shubert and Robert Schumann. This concert is organised in collaboration with the Queen Elisabeth Competition.

 

One of the most demanding, and one of the most widely publicised international competitions, the Queen Elisabeth Competition, ever since its creation in 1937, has established itself as a springboard for young violinists, pianists, singers, and cellists on the threshold of an international career. Steadfastly committed to the project initiated by Eugène Ysaÿe and Queen Elisabeth, the Queen Elisabeth Competition seeks to discover complete artists; it owes its reputation to a prestigious jury, strict rules, and unparalleled media coverage, as well as to the friendly and enthusiastic hospitality offered by an entire country and its Royal Family. The Competition aims, above all, to serve as an intermediary between those young virtuosos and the world’s great musical venues.
