The Belgian chamber music quintet Het Collectief and the choral ensemble Psallentes, which specialises in plainchant and polyphony, dedicate an evening to two female composers: Hildegard von Bingen and the Russian composer Galina Ustvolskaya. There might be nearly a millennium between them, but there are certain similarities – a strong urge to create, often ecstatic sounds – which the musicians aim to accentuate. The concert takes place on 23 February 2017 in the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam.
