Camerata Trajectina-Music from the Golden Age

Friday 20th of October 2017 19:30 - 21:30

The theme of this year's New York Early Music Celebration, which runs from Ocotber 13th until Ocotber 22nd, is 'The Low Countries - Holland & Flanders'. This theme was obviously a good reason for The Netherland Club of New York to host one of the concerts of the music festival. Therefore, we are proud to present the concert 'Music from the Golden Age' by Camerata Trajectina.

A more Dutch early music ensemble is hardly conceivable. Since their founding in 1974, Camerata Trajectina is specialized in Dutch music from the 16th and 17th century - The Golden Age, a time where The Netherlands blossomed economically. But also artistically, through art of painters like Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Steen and Johannes Vermeer, as well as poets like P.C. Hooft, Joost van den Vondel (the Dutch 'Shakespeare') and Constantijn Huygens, who composed music to many of their poems.


With this concert (2 x 40min) Camerata Trajectina will expose the versatility of the early music in the 'Low Lands' and its intertwining with other art forms, like poetry and literature, paintings and theater art. A few of the performances will include intense love songs by Pieter Cornelisz Hooft, moving theater music for Joost van den Vondels plays, society criticizing and satirical songs by Constantijn Huygens and erotic jocular songs by Jan Janszoon. fsl" data-testid="event-permalink-details"> A concert that will turn out to be a journey into sound and time, to the time of Rembrandt and Vermeer... - the Golden Age of The Netherlands.
