This programme is anything but new, but timelessly wonderful. The Paris-born actor and singer Dominique Horwitz has engaged with the work of the legendary belgian chansonnier for more than 30 years – and so successfully that critics have acknowledged that his interpretations are sometimes better than those of Brel himself. «Every time I sing them I learn something new», says Horwitz of Jacques Brel’s songs. Thanks to his feeling for the music, Dominique Horwitz is among the most sought-after artists in the field where music and literature intersect. In addition, he is regarded as a jack-of-all-trades in the theatrical world. He first appeared on television at 19, then acted in prestigious theatres in German-speaking countries, contributed to multi-award-winning film and television productions and put on his first opera. And you can be sure that Dominique Horwitz’ Brel interpretations today sound completely different from those of 30 years ago.
