Luth alors! (fully booked)
The music of duo Luth alors! blends the golden voice of Brussels soprano Lore Binon with the warm tones of the lutes and citterns played by Floris De Rycker. They will take you on the trail of courtly love through the ages with their musical programme, specially designed for the Maison de Saint Cyr/Huis Saint-Cyr. Nature is a prominent feature of the Renaissance and early Baroque pieces in their performance and the Art Nouveau architecture of the setting. The dominant colours in the various rooms of the house – for example the red of the living room, with its Chinese-inspired woodwork, or the dark green of the mezzanine – conjure up images of dark valleys and clear skies of the brightest blue. As you visit the house, you will have the chance to take in a short concert, a few minutes in length, by these talented musicians.
In cooperation with Artonov and Atelier de Recherche et d’Action Urbaines (ARAU).
