Gods, nymphs and fairies inhabit an entertaining concert by the Belgian group Scherzi Musicali, directed by Nicholas Achten, one of the wonderful Baroque musicians whose talents are manifold: singing, playing numerous instruments, directing, and writing arrangements. Purcell's operas “The Fairy Queen“ and “The Tempest“ build the groundwork of this concert. Created at the end of Shakespeare's century, these two pieces went down in musical history as so-called semi-operas thanks to their famous melodies. The audience can expect a selection of the most beautiful arias and instrumental pieces.
