Autumn Concert 2019 : Triptiek
Saturday 16 November 2019, at 20.00, Lokhorstkerk, Pieterskerkstraat 1, Leiden
Since the reopening of Museum De Lakenhal, it is home again: The Last Judgment by Lucas van Leyden, the groundbreaking triptych. This masterpiece of northern Renaissance is the source of inspiration for Leiden Chamber Choir’s program Triptiek: three parts, each with its own character, forming a whole together.
With our musical triptych we take you to three periods and three regions: Italian Renaissance, British Romanticism and modern Scandinavian choral music. From those three perspectives Triptiek tells the story of mankind’s relationship with love, death and nature.
In the intimate atmosphere of the Lokhorstkerk, we let you experience how composers bring universal themes to sound in their own way in different periods – from an Italian madrigal about a love-sick man cooling his heart under the stars to the cries of Swedish fishermen wives who finally see their men return from the sea. This triptych offers a wide view on what a-cappella choir music has to offer, in a varied program where there is always something new to discover.
Tickets: 12€ (childeren < 18 free) including program and a drink during the intermission.
