Het Middagconcert op zondag - Lea Desandre en Thomas Dunford
On October 29, the mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre and the lutenist Thomas Dunford will bring an afternoon of French song art to the Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam, which will show love in all its facets: longing, desire, enchantment, happiness... From early baroque of Honoré d'Ambruys to the impressionism of Satie and Debussy.
French art of song
The French-Italian mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre studied singing and followed ballet training for twelve years. On stage she can be found as a singer in major roles. For example, she sang in Mozart's La clemenza di Tito and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas . Her Amsterdam program for the Recital Hall focuses on French song. For this she brings along the excellent French lutenist Thomas Dunford. He accompanies the mezzo, whose powerful virtuosity is widely praised.
Love in songs
Lea Desandre and Thomas Dunford bring three centuries of French songs to the Small Hall. Songs that explore love in all its facets: longing, desire, fascination, happiness... From courtly love to human love. From songs from the early Baroque to works by Satie and Debussy, in which Thomas Dunford's lute plays the piano part.
With thanks to the supporters of the Kleine Zaal Fund.
