Rainy Days festival

The Rainy Days festival returns, a year late, to celebrate its 20th year and 15th at the Philharmonie. From 12 November to 5 December, the stunning venue in Kirchberg will play host to a staggering 24 concerts and artist talks, including a performance by the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg that features three brand-new works.

Here are just some of the highlights from a jam-packed schedule:

Isles & Rivers – Their last show in Luxembourg, in 2017, left audiences hungry for more so expect tickets to go fast for this ten-piece ensemble who merge Persian music with western baroque and contemporary music.

11+4+5+4 – What’s better than one ensemble? Two ensembles? Well, yes, but you know what’s even better than that? Three? No. Four! Four ensembles on stage at one time! With energy, music and a digital puppet theatre, light-as-air sculptures will be floating through the Philharmonie: it should be very special.

Alternate African Reality – Beginning with an artist talk with Cedrik Fermont, a musical traveller who, alongside his own artistic work, loves to discover experimental music from Africa and Asia that he believes should be better known in the West. In this concert, he presents a new work of his own plus a selection of experimental music from Africa.
