Exploring polyphony with the ‘armed man’

Did you buy a ticket for this concert?  The corona virus hits the arts industry hard and for many arts organisations, this economic damage comes on top of the recent cuts in Flemish cultural subsidies. This is why we call on our audience not to ask for a refund of cancelled tickets, in solidarity with the artists. The financial resources thus retained will be fully invested by the Concertgebouw in the artists most affected by job losses. You can also get your ticket value back in the form of a voucher. You will receive this voucher via e-mail in the upcoming weeks. The voucher can be used for a performance of your choice via concertgebouw.be and is valid for one year. You can thus easily use this voucher for the purchase of tickets for this season or the following.
Confirm your choice by May 20 2020 in the digital form via this link.

Assisted live by the Cinquecento vocal ensemble, Ignace Bossuyt takes us to a musical country he knows like his own backyard: the polyphony of the ‘Franco-Flamands’, the composers who set out from the Low Countries and conquered the world. In this lecture performance, Ignace scrutinises Dufay's masterpiece Missa L’homme armé, from its melody – which was omnipresent in its day – to the fascinating history of the Lucca Choirbook.
