Lux Beata — The Musical Orchard
- 15.00 Kamermuziekzaal
- 16.25 Expected end time
- 14.15 Introduction by Johan Van Acker
Searching between pain and ecstasy
The strange - sometimes painful - harmonies of the Neapolitan Baroque are, we think, almost as exotic as the ancient Armenian tradition. In a programme that raises more questions than it answers, the viola da gambas of Brussels ensemble Lux Beata shine.
Toccatas, passacaglias and variations by, among others, Giovanni de Macque, Giovanni Felice Sances & Bernardo Storace, and traditional Armenian songs
Fredrik Hildebrand: discant viola da gamba & leader
Asami Orihara: tenor viola da gamba
Rebecca Lefèvre: bass viola da gamba
Anne Bernard: bass viola da gamba
Sofie van den Eynde: theorbo
A cosy meal before or after the show.
