Bassoon-piano duo

Brussels Muzieque 

Music / Wed 12th Oct / 8 PM

You might have already enjoyed the bucolic colour of a bassoon solo during a symphonic performance (as in Stravinsky's 'Sacre du Printemps' opening, or within a wind quintet). However, it is a whole other experience to witness a recital where this unique instrument is only accompanied by a fellow pianist. You'll dive in a whole new universe of sounds and characters that only such a combination can concoct.

In this recital, pianist Lily Maisky and bassoonist Mavroudes Troullos, present you great romantic composers such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, impressionists and symbolists such as Saint-Saens and Scriabin, among others.

They will take you through an explorative journey of the Bassoon's expression and virtuosity, combined with the monumental presence and versatility of the piano.


LILY MAISKY, Paris-born pianist, has performed throughout whole Europe and regularly tours the Far East, North and South America. Lily has been invited to many of the great festivals from Lugano to Beijing and regularly performs in renown prestigious venues all around the world. Lily has released several recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, and Belgian label Avanti Classics. Lily is a Steinway Artist and the proud owner of the last instrument of the legendary Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

MAVROUDES TROULLOS, Cypriot bassoonist, winner of several international prizes, such as the First Prizes at the Grand Prize Virtuoso of Amsterdam (2019), Paris (2019) and London (2019), as well as Second Prize at the North International Music Competition in Sweden (2018) and the Horlait-Dapsens Award in Belgium (2018). Mavroudes has been named Ambassador of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel in 2018. He has given recitals in big concert and has appeared as a soloist.
