An institution of the Flemish community, the Brussels Philharmonic was founded in 1935 by the Belgian public broadcaster (NIR/INR). Alongside premiering new works, the orchestra has collaborated with world-renowned composers such as Bartók, Stravinsky, Messiaen and Luca Francesconi, and its groundbreaking enterprise, the global platform CffOR (Centre for Future Orchestral Repertoire), is uniquely dedicated to promoting the finest 21st-century orchestral compositions to repertoire status. As of 2015, French conductor Stéphane Denève is the music director.

The orchestra makes regular appearances in the major European capitals, and international representation by IMG Touring has resulted in further tours and concerts. It has also received praise for its expertise in film music, including the Academy Award-winning score for The Artist.

The orchestra’s discography, released by Deutsche Grammophon and Palazzetto Bru Zane among others, has garnered international acclaim, with releases receiving ECHO Klassik, Choc de Classica de l’année and Diapason d’or de l’année awards.
