October 2010, Concert trip to Canada

In October 2010, BRISK will give three concerts in British Columbia together with the gambists Susanne Braumann and Rainer Zipperling.

The viols blend with the recorders in this programme with English music from the 16th and 17th centuries. Dances and fantasias are to be heard before the interval, and BRISK demonstrates that 16th century English composers were fond of creating innovative variations on existing melodies. After the interval another English phenomenon is introduced: the masque, a form of entertainment at court, with dance, poetry, music and theatre in spectacular settings. The combination of music from The Lords’ Masque (1613) with animations gives this concert a theatrical dimension. We can both hear and see how Orpheus tames the animals with his music. To make these animations, BRISK has been working together with students of the Academy of the Arts Utrecht. This well-received concert programme can also be heard and seen on CD/DVD
