The BELART Female String Quartet
Formed in 2016 in Brussels, the BELART Female String Quartet is a chamber ensemble under the China Belgium Art & Culture Society (Chinabelart). It is composed of both Chinese and Western Artists active in the Belgian Music Scene.
The group performs both masterpieces of Western music and Traditional Chinese folk music. Through the universal language of music, this Quartet interprets a diverse array of musical works, bringing together Chinese music and European Culture in conversation, thus allowing European people to gather in-depth knowledge of Chinese music and culture.
Belgian composer and pianist Johan Famaey performed and composed countless works with and for different ensembles in Europe and China. He has won the 'Verdi Keurmerk' and 'Cantabile Piano' composition contests in 2019.
He has composed three song cycles: Chinese Memories, Chinese Impressions and Omomwonden (Wrapped) which paved the way to the melodic, harmonic and polyphonic importance of all his compositions throughout. Johans musical 'HORS' (the story of Bayard) premiered on February 16th in Dendermonde Belgium. Musical HORS included an orchestra, actors, soloists and choir for a total of 164 performers.
He is known for his piano and filmic music releases including 'Moon Touch' , 'Moon Wish', ‘Back to Selene’ and 'Time Passenger'.
