King Philip and Queen Mathilda attended a concert in Bozar on Sunday afternoon as part of the centenary of the ceasefire. Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz were also part of the audience. They had the world premiere of the Requiem war of Annelies Van Parys and the No. 5 by Gustav Mahler, performed by the Belgian National Orchestra under the guidance of Hugh Wolff. Annelies Van Parys, which has nothing to do with British composer Benjamin Britten's eponymous work, looks more like an oratorio – a dramatic work represented without orchestra or costume – the voices that are a personification of different aspects of the conflict. It is also universal, "war and the dead beyond the framework of religions," according to the composer. (Belga)
