Amandine Beyer & Les Cornets Noirs

Polychoral splendour

The musical history of Venice is one highlight after another. Around 1600, the city on the lagoon was a centre for grandiose, polyphonic vocal and instrumental music. Composers there wrote monumental, glorious compositions, not just for the Doge and St Mark’s Basilica but for the other churches and various festivals as well. Les Cornets Noirs play instrumental works that combine Renaissance counterpoint with Baroque principles of playing in alternation. The ensemble, featuring artist in residence Amandine Beyer, consists of violins, viols, trombones and the cornetts that have given the group its name.
