Listening to and singing the works of Sweelinck

Concert and workshop on 22 October 2021

Are you also a fan of the impressive oeuvre of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck? Then be sure to make a note of 22 October in your diary because the Swiss ensemble, Lamaraviglia, will be giving a concert of his music in Delft on that date. Prior to this concert, you can sing some Sweelinck works yourself during a workshop at Koorschool Delft conducted by David Hurley.

 

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck

On 16 October, it will be 400 years since Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck died. This great Dutch composer was the teacher of important German composers like Praetorius and Scheidemann who in turn had a strong influence on the work of Bach. The Sweelinck Festival will be held from 16 to 24 October to mark the anniversary of Sweelinck’s death. This festival with concerts and workshops will take place in and around Amsterdam, but you can also attend a concert and a workshop about this important composer in Delft. At our request, Lamaraviglia is coming to Delft for a concert on Friday 22 October. This ensemble is specialised in Sweelinck’s music and is also participating in the Amsterdam festival.

In the coming months we will work out the details of the workshop (corona proof of course). Keep an eye on our newsletter and this website for more information and to register but make a note of 22 October in your diary now! If you want to be the first to be informed as soon as all information has been updated, please send a request under Registration.
