Ricercar Consort & Philippe Pierlot

Concert for the viola, from William Byrd to Bernard Foccroulle

Bernard Foccroulle is musician-in-residence at the 2019 Wallonia Festivals. He will be doubling up at the Musiq’3 Festival: with the Conservatoire’s Baroque Orchestra and with a new composition – a world premiere! – written for a consort of viols by Philippe Pierlot. The contemporary work of our Belgian compatriot will thus be set against sixteenth-century Elizabethan English and Spanish repertoires written for the same ensemble of instruments.
