Psallentes♀, Concinite & Joris Verdin

During the weekend Slow Lisztening you will be able to discover works by the Hungarian composer that, unfairly, are only seldom to be heard on the concert stage, such as An den Wassern zu Babylon. This psalm setting for the unusual cast of solo voice, women’s choir, violin, harp and harmonium occupies a unique place in Franz Liszt’s oeuvre. In this work he manages to find a perfect balance between religious depth and theatrical effectiveness. Generally speaking Liszt’s repertoire for women’s choir deserves more consideration anyway. Up the alley of AMUZ, which especially for this occasion brings together two splendid vocal ensembles: the angelic voices of Psallentes♀ and the choir Concinite, which will surely enthrall you in this romantic repertoire.
