Pieter Bergé (b. 1967) is professor of musicology at the KULeuven. He is a specialist in music of the period 1750-1900, but he has an enduring love of twentieth-century music. He presents himself as a modern musicologist, eager to share his specialist knowledge with a far broader circle of music-lovers. He is the artistic director of Festival 20/21, which focuses on music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
