1618 | Before & beyond
2018 is going to be a special year for AMUZ. Laus Polyphoniae, the festival dedicated to the music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in the summer.
In the autumn of 2018, AMUZ will be setting its sights on Baroque music, as part of Antwerp Baroque 2018. Rubens inspires. The linchpin of the musical activities will be 1618, the year in which St. Augustine's Church was opened. Various styles of music co-existed at the time: the older polyphony and the new Baroque monody.
Laus Polyphoniae will present music from before 1618, from Gregorian chants to sumptuous polyphony. The new musical styles and genres of the Baroque, on the other hand, can be heard in abundance in the autumn: secular operas, religious cantatas and instrumental music.
The full program will be announced in February 2018. But for five concerts you can order your tickets now. Discover them at www.amuz.be
