This event has now passed.The Kugoni Trio is made up of violinist Nicolas Dupont, saxophonist Kurt Bertels and painist Bert Koch. The trio have been highly respected guests in concert halls both in Belgium and abroad since their founding in 2010; they owe this not only to their unique blend of piano, violin and saxophone but also to their energetic performances and their passionate search for new repertoire. They are frequent guests in many Belgian cultural centres and have already performed in the Palais de Beaux-Arts and Flagey in Brussels, the Academiezaal in Sint-Truiden, AMUZ in Antwerp and the Concertgebouw in Bruges. They have also gained a small but loyal following abroad after giving concerts in Germany, France and the Netherlands.
The trio are particularly interested in Belgian works and have been an active source of inspiration for Belgian contemporary composers. They commission several works each year and have already given the first performances of works by Erik Desimpelaere, Hanne Deneire, Wilfried Westerlinck and many more. The trio continues to have a bright future which will include more concerts, more first performances and more collaborations with contemporary composers.
