A Song for All Seasons—Instrumental Music and Songs from the Renaissance
For three decades the virtuoso instrumentalists of the Flanders Recorder Quartet have earned a peerless reputation for brilliant clarity, technical perfection, and sensitive musicianship, and in late 2018 they will perform their final concerts. Join these exceptional musicians — and dazzling soprano Cécile Kempenaers — during their farewell year. Their program will feature instrumental music and songs of Italy, Flanders, and England inspired by the eternal changing of the seasons. Experience these legendary artists performing captivating music by Byrd, Dowland, Parsons, Giamberti, de la Rue, and others.
The exhibitions Power and Grace: Drawings by Rubens, Van Dyck, and Jordaens and Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time will be open at 6:30 pm for concert attendees.
