Today John Dowland (1563-1626) is rightfully considered to be one of the most important musical personalities of the English Golden Age. The Swiss composer Carl Rütti has written a Dowland Suite for B-Five that recounts the life of the English master. Dowland expressed his personal leaning towards melancholy in his most famous song, Flow, my Teares. Based on that song, he composed seven passionate dances in which his rich musical imagination created a compendium of sorrow. In collaboration with Rütti, the ensemble has developed In Search of Dowland: a colourful combination of old and new, where the polyphony of the past merges harmoniously with the sounds of today.
