Part of the festival atlântico on -
The music of these countries has always been an important part the Philharmonie’s programming, and the heart-warming autumn festival «atlântico» pays homage to this legacy. Over a full week of concerts and events catering to all age groups, we open our doors to numerous artists from across the Portugese-speaking world, and symbolically also to a significant portion of Luxembourg’s population.

Bach in Brazil? Baroque suites from the 20th century?

Between 1930 and 1945, Heitor Villa-Lobos, the leading star of Brazilian "modernismo", composed nine suites dedicated to Johann Sebastian Bach: the Bachianas Brasileiras (Bach-inspired Brazilian pieces). In his search for a national style, he combined European compositional techniques with Brazilian folk music. From his film score for Green Mansions with Audrey Hepburn, he created a symphonic suite that meets a work by the seasoned film composer Philip Glass.
