Ensemble Barock Nord West—Von Liebe, Rebellion und Seefahrt (Of Love, Rebellion, and Seafaring)

Theodorskirche
Wednesday, 18 May
19:30

The Ensemble Barock Nord West is a group of musicians dedicated to the largely unknown Renaissance and Baroque music of northern and north-western Europe. Under the direction of Marianne Leemann, the group explores songs and dances from Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and the Netherlands, with occasional detours across the Atlantic. On this evening, they will be playing Irish and Scottish songs. Characterized by the rough coastal landscapes of the Northwest, the music tells of people's lives full of deprivation, of their dreams, and of their irrepressible will to defy the adverse circumstances through songs and dances.
Entrance is free but there will be a collection.
