Concertgebouw X Musea Brugge
19 September to 5 December 2021
With Mind the Artist, Bruges’ city museums give carte blanche to Concertgebouw Brugge to engage with their collection in a multidisciplinary way. Six interventions in the Gezelle House, City Hall, St. John’s Hospital, the Church of Our Lady and the Groeningemuseum highlight symbolist light and renaissance polyphony, bird song and dance. Early music projects include Catalina Vicens’ ensemble Servir Antico in a new project focused on Memling’s Apocalypse combining very early and new music in a historic attic from around 1320, and Ensemble Polyharmonique in dialogue with (and in front of) Michelangelo’s famous Madonna.
