The Bulletin radio show on Bruzz: 4 February

10:49 04/02/2018
Listen back to the reports and interviews from The Bulletin's weekly radio show on 98.8FM in Brussels

Emma Posman
The Honda Competition for Classical Music - now in its second year - is an unusual musical competition. Most such competitions are between players of one instrument, a piano competition or a violin competition for instance. In this case all instruments are competing with each other. This year there are three finalists, two sopranos and an oboe. Emma Posman, one of the soprano finalists talks with us about being a musician. Included are excerpts of a performance by Emma accompanied by Getacine Pegorim on piano of Ah! Non credea mirarti from Bellini's La Sonnambula. You can attend the final this coming Wednesday (7 February) at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels starting at 20.00. Free.

Julian Hills
When Julian Hills was 20 years old, he began experimenting with photography. The self-taught photographer began capturing emotional moments at concerts, and soon began working with different charity organisations. His new book, “Ordinary People” highlights people with disabilities, or just ordinary people that deserve recognition in a world where only the perfect get on the front of magazines.

Roots
Our colleagues at Bruzz International visit Roots, an organic produce store a stone's throw from the Schuman roundabout in the EU quarter.
