Maarten Engeltjes & PRJCT Asmterdam: Lamento
Screaming, grunting, softly dying or heartbreaking howling: pain can be expressed in an infinite number of ways. Add music to that mix and you get an astonishing range of songs that search for bright spots in the darkness between complaint, regret and hope. Maarten Engeltjes and PRJCT Amsterdam sign for Dieterich Buxtehude, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach and Johann Sebastian Bach. Come and listen in the Waalse Kerk.
A voice you want to keep listening to
Round and smooth, honest and glowing and with that golden edge that elevates 'beautiful' to 'excellent', Engeltjes' voice led to the most renowned opera stages and concert stages in about twenty years.
With a heart for baroque and contemporary repertoire, Engeltjes ensures that his own amazement with regard to well-known and lesser-known masterpieces is intensely experienced by the audience at every performance.
In 2017 he founded the baroque orchestra PRJCT Amsterdam, which is not only a breeding ground for talented musicians, but also a refuge for baroque performances with vision and temperament.
With a debut CD on record label Sony (Bach: Forgotten arias, 2019), the career of baroque orchestra PRJCT Amsterdam took off in 2019. Between sweet charm and crystal-clear counterpoint, PRJCT Amsterdam stands for baroque with salt and pepper, which will appeal to aspiring music lovers and connoisseurs alike.
