Rembrandt - Alon Sariel & Concerto Foscari

Ann Geerts

In 1669 Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn dies in Amsterdam. Already an icon during his life time, we look back on an artist life that remained present and respected throughout the centuries. A master painter, whose life was pervaded by tragic strokes of fate. Besides his contemporaries Jan Vermeer and Frans Hals he is counted among the epigones of Dutch art.

A musical programme along the basic parameters of Rembrandt's life lead into an era of splendour of the Netherlands, characterised by political, societal and religious changes. At the interface between the strict Spanish Catholicism and the advancing Calvinism, which finally suppresses the Counter-Reformation, musical combinations and novelties that are connected to great names of music history are born. A rich music tradition in an astounding atmosphere of tolerance is being developed in a new social class of wealthy citizens as well as in the realm of sacred music.

Programme:

Music by Emanuel Adriaenssen, Benedictus Buns, Jacob van Eyck, Constantijn Huygens, Carel Hacquart, Joachim van den Hove, Nikolaus Kempis, Louis de Moy, Peter Philips, Johannes Schenck, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck as well as compositions from the Susanne van Soldt Manuscript and the Thysius lute book.
