NEW DATE?

This concert was originally planned in May 2020 but was postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus. All ticketholders were notified personally.

The new date remains subject to any further security measures. We therefore do not sell additional tickets. As soon as there is more certainty about the organization of the new date, we will decide whether to start an additional sale.

Music in the days of Dirk Bouts

Saint Peter’s Church in Leuven boasts one of the masterpieces of the Flemish primitives: ‘The Last Supper’ by Dieric Bouts. On the occasion of the 545th anniversary of the painter’s death on 6 May 1475, music that was composed and performed by his contemporaries will ascend to heaven along the Gothic rib-vault ceiling of the restored church. 

Voices and instruments will fill the space with the complexity of polyphony and the simplicity of Gregorian chant. In this exceptional setting, sound and architecture will enter into a dialogue, creating a soundscape that takes us back to the time and place in which Dieric Bouts lived and worked.
