‘Theodoor van Loon's Ear’

16 Oct.'18
- 20:00

Huelgas Ensemble - Paul Van Nevel

Paul Van Nevel and his Huelgas Ensemble breathe new life into the seventeenth century with stunning Renaissance music by Francesco Soriano, Agostino Agazzari, Pedro Rimonte, Peter Philips … The Church of Saint John the Baptist at the Béguinage provides the perfect setting for this, with its lovely acoustics – its wooden roof is made of oak from the Loire – and the paintings of Theodoor van Loon decorating the walls. Like his contemporary Rubens, this “Caravaggio of the Southern Netherlands” developed his own powerful and original style, which was heavily inspired by the Italian master painters. 

See more of his work at the Centre for Fine Arts from 10 October 2018 until 13 January 2019. Your concert ticket gives you a 50% discount on your exhibition ticket.
