Ode to Orpheus
Amstel Quartet streams unheard programmes of past season from remarkable locations. Today Ode to Orpheus from the Broerekerk in Bolsward.
Music by Sweelinck, Vrolijk
Exactly four hundred years after his death, the spirit of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck is still very much alive in the Netherlands. In this memorable year, Amstel Quartet brings an ode to the ‘Prince of Musicke’.
They play his famous fantasias and vocal compositions, complemented with work by present-day Dutch composer Renske Vrolijk.
