The Belgian vocal ensemble Air4Six blends six solo voices into a magnificent palette of colours with profound musical originality.
The sextet specialises in Romantic and contemporary repertoire, as well as working with contemporary composers to give a stage and a voice to new music.
At AMUZ’ request, baritone and artistic leader Joris Derder has put together a Christmas programme. Along with motets by Poulenc, you will hear a selection of Christmas carols and songs from places including England and Scandinavia. The central symbol of the programme is the rose, including Praetorius’ famous Es ist ein Ros entsprungen. Following on from their lockdown streaming from AMUZ in 2021, the six singers of Air4Six will dazzle you live on stage. Unmissable!
F. Poulenc: Quatre motets pour un temps de Noël, Un soir de neige, Salve regina | M. Praetorius: Es ist ein Ros entsprungen | Christmas songs from England, Scandinavia, etc.
