BAROQUE MUSIC FROM FLANDERS AND CATALONIA IN AMUZ
Friday, 8 November 2019
At the request of AMUZ [Flanders Festival - Antwerp], Festival de Música Antiga dels Pirineus, Institut Ramon Llull and Flanders Arts Institute, the Flemish versatile musician and conductor Frank Agsteribbe brings musicians from Flanders and Catalonia together. Allow yourself to be astonished by the music of 18th century Flemish and Catalan composers who were very famous in their time, such as Pedro Rabassa, Francesc Valls and Henri Jacques de Croes. De Croes began his career as the first violinist at St James’ Church in Antwerp, later becoming the master of the court chapel in Brussels. He also made a great name for himself as a composer, with works including his violin concerto Il rossignolo & coucou. Ensemble Flandriae-Pyrenaei puts musical gems by famous names of the age back on the map!
