- 10 Mar, Friday
- Het Koninklijk Concertgebouw Amsterdam
This evening, hosted by the two renowned baroque ensembles, is dedicated to mourning in the baroque period, which came in quite a variety at the time. While the Frenchman Jean Gilles managed to make his requiem, or Messe des Morts, sound positively light-footed, works by English composers Dowland ('Lachrimae', or 'Seven Tears') and Purcell ('Funeral Sentences') bear a heavy melancholy. On 12 November 2016 in Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw.
