Pentecost Festival 2020
29 - 30 - 31 May 2020
The Huelgas Ensemble in Talant (Burgundy)
Artistic director: Paul Van Nevel
The Huelgas Ensemble is a cultural ambassador for Flemish heritage.
Following the overwhelming success of the first Huelgas festival -a true celebration of polyphony- the Huelgas Ensemble invites you to its second festival.
A new book by Paul Van Nevel:
Het landschap van de polyfonisten - The world of the Franco-Flemish School (1400-1600)
Photography: Luk Van Eeckhout
Why did the polyphonists all come from the same region of southwest Belgium and northern France? And and what was the influence of this region on their music? A unique analysis of the environment - the ‘cultural landscape’ - of the 15th and 16th century musician. The book includes a CD and no fewer than 168 beautiful photographs.
