From 12-14 October 2018, the Brussels Cello Festival presented top cellists from Belgium and around the world in solo recitals, concertos, masterclasses, and chamber music ensembles. Invited artists included soloists such as Gary Hoffman, Marie Hallynck, David Cohen, Alexander Buzlov, Roel Dieltiens, Anne Gastinel, Paul Katz, Jakob Koranyi, Pieter Wispelwey, and Han Bin Yoon.
Faculty and students from the various Belgian conservatories (e.g. Brussels, Antwerp, Gent, etc.) participated in the masterclasses and closing concert, ending the first edition with a mass cello sound never before heard in Belgium!
