    Souvenirs of Talant 2019

    7 - 8 - 9 June 2019
    The Huelgas Ensemble in Talant (Burgundy)
    Artistic director: Paul Van Nevel 

    During the Pentecost weekend of 2019 a long-held dream came true:  the Huelgas Ensemble organized its very own festival for the first time. And it immediately became an absolute revelation in the densely populated festival landscape: for the first time a festival took place dedicated to one ensemble with an exclusive repertoire.

    The concept succeeded in all ways: for three days visitors to the festival could indulge in unprecedented vocal polyphony, enjoying perfect performances in the magical late Romanesque church of the tranquil village of Talant.

    The focus was on the three main evening concerts that were briefly but illuminatingly commentated by Paul Van Nevel, and during which a number of surprising experiments were conducted. In addition there were two late night concerts, lectures on the Burgundian Renaissance period, an organ recital and an initiation into Renaissance dance art.

    Last but not least, during the three-day festival bar ‘Chez Josquin’ an interaction was forged between the internationally colourful audience and the performers. The acclaim for these lively discussions was proven by the numerous responses that the ensemble received after the festival.

    This festival was made possible thanks to the financial support and encouragement of Mr Bart and Mrs Hilde De Moor - Devoghel.
