Huelgas Ensemble

Landscape

The rolling landscape of northern France was the ultimate source of inspiration for the composers who worked there. That is the premise of the new book Het landschap der polyfonisten. De wereld van de Franco-Flamands (The Landscape of Polyphony. The World of the Franco-Flemish School) by Paul Van Nevel. The magnificent polyphony of composers such as Johannes Ockeghem, Josquin des Prez and Antoine de Févin that will resound at this concert by Huelgas Ensemble was written in the region of Bruges, Mons, Saint-Quentin and Boulogne. These composers, who made an indelible mark on the evolution of polyphonic music, were influenced by the melancholy, beauty and variety of nature and cathedrals, basing their work on symmetry, proportion and rhythm. Atmospheric images of the landscape, made by the photographer Luk Van Eeckhout, give the concert an extra, visual dimension.
