As a child, the options were quite clear for young pianist Brecht Valckenaers (from Leuven!): he would either become Bob the Builder or a musician! At the age of 22, he already has a series of important awards to his name. 

For this recital in Leuven, he has selected Shostakovich and his 'Sonata No. 2', which rarely appears on concert programmes despite being a strong, original composition and one of the maestro’s most inspired works.

Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975)
Prelude and Fugue, op. 87 No.4
Sonata No.2, op. 61
