Marc Vanscheeuwijck & Les Basses Réunies

Marc Vanscheeuwijck, a Flemish professor at the University of Oregon, tells the story of the cello: its history, repertoire and evolution from the late Renaissance to the late Baroque. Les Basses Réunies led by Bruno Cocset illustrate the story with music, presenting no less than ten different instruments on stage, both viols and cellos. Expect a varied and colourful voyage of discovery through different material, sounds, countries and composers, including Diego Ortiz, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Henry Purcell and Arcangelo Corelli. An unmissable lecture performance in words and music, along the same lines as the very popular afternoon with Tom Beghin about Beethoven and his pianos last season.
