During the 18th edition of the World Soundtrack Awards, we had the honour to welcome internationally acclaimed composers Carter Burwell, Nicholas Britell and Philippe Sarde. Enjoy some of the most marvelous performances by Brussels Philharmonic under the baton of maestro Dirk Brossé!

American composer Logan Nelson wins the SABAM Award for the most Original Composition by a Young International Composer during the 18th edition of the World Soundtrack Awards. Logan wrote a new composition for an excerpt from the 1988 cult movie ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ by the late director Isao Takahata.

WSAwards Honorary Guest 2018 Carter Burwell took the opportunity to conduct Brussels Philharmonic. The orchestra performs the overture from ‘Anomalisa’, the eerily detailed puppet animation by Charlie Kaufman.

In attendance of World Soundtrack Discovery of the Year 2017 Award winner Nicholas Britell and director Barry Jenkins, Brussels Philharmonic under the baton of maestro Dirk Brossé, plays 'The Middle of the World’ from the Oscar winning movie ‘Moonlight’.

Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé plays the jazzy end credits of ‘Le Locataire’ composed by World Soundtrack Lifetime Achievement Award winner 2018 Philippe Sarde. Known as one of the most original French film composers, Philippe Sarde’s career embraces 50 years of collaboration on the best movies and with great directors such as Roman Polanski, Claude Sautet, Bertrand Tavernier and many others.

This year the World Soundtrack Awards will take place on Friday 18 October 2019.

Already looking forward to some more wonderful performances and new magical moments!
