The Duo Moscato~Núñez was born of the complicity and friendship between two musicians specializing in early music, both living and working in Brussels. Fabiola Moscato and Rafael Nunez Velazquez have taken up the challenge of exploring the vast and rich repertoire for violin and keyboard of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, including such gems as the Sonatas by Bach.

Pianist and harpsichordist Fabiola Moscato trained on historical keyboards with Laura Alvini, Marco Vincenzi, and Umberto Forni. She plays continuo for various orchestras, choirs and ensembles, and has performed for numerous European cultural institutions. She performs both on historical instruments, including organs, and on copies of early instruments, her preferred repertoire being Baroque and Galant composers. A passionate pedagogue, she teaches at the academies of Auderghem and Saint-Gilles and is regularly called upon as a jury member or artistic adviser. Fabiola Moscato is co-founder of the Ensemble Les Folies Royales (music & dance) and the Ensemble Sfere (vocal chamber music).

Rafael Núñez Velázquez was born in Seville in 1983. After completing his violin studies at the Manuel Castillo Higher Conservatory of Music in the class of Alejandro Tuñón, he became interested in early music and so took lessons from members of the ‘Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla. Winner of a scholarship from the government of his region, he went to study in the Netherlands to follow a Bachelor program in baroque violin with Antoinette Lohmann at the Hogeschool voor of Kunsten Utrecht. Later, he continued his studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Mira Glodeanu. He followed masterclasses with Lucy van Dael, Stefano Montanari, Pablo Valetti, and Sayuri Yamagata, among others.
He plays with orchestras and ensembles such as Les Agrémens, Collegium Ad Mosam, Les Muffatti, B’Rock, Scherzi Musicali, etc.


Last year, we were unable to hold this festival due to a lack of financial support from the authorities. This year, the authorities will be making a modest contribution so, we need your participation and we count on your generosity after the concert.
