A day in Brussels... with Brel
Born in Brussels on the 8th of April 1929, Jacques Brel rapidly became a living legend. Both a charismatic and emblematic character he brought his impulses, passions and outrages to life through the scope of his songs.

Jacques Brel the eccentric, the author, the composer, the interpreter, the pilot, the navigator, the actor, the comedian and the director passed away in 1978. A few years later in 1981, upon a family initiative, the 'Jacques Brel Foundation' opened its doors to the public. The institution is an invaluable collection of documents relative to the 'Grand Jacques' life: videos, audio files, press articles, pictures, slides, partitions, records... the list of objects on display is exhaustive. These archives present many facets of Belgium's most renowned composers of all times. Nicolas Alsteen
