Voices of Passion 2020
Polyphonic gems from the renaissance
Leuven and polyphony have since long been closely connected. The music that could be heard in the city in the 15th and 16th centuries now once again resounds in harmony with the architecture of the restored Saint Peter’s Church in Leuven and Park Abbey church in Heverlee.
Just like the Franco-Flemish polyphonists played a leading role in Europe in their age, the ensembles that will perform during 'Voices of Passion 2020' feature prominently on the international concert stage. The festival therefore brings not only marvellous music from the Low Countries but also polyphonic masterpieces composed and performed for the first times in Rome, Naples, London or Vienna.
