(From the latest Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music Newsletter)

'Far from the tumult of arms'
Artistic Director Lindsay Kemp writes...

'My profession is very far from the tumult of arms and from the reasons of state that cause them to be taken up. When I mingle French airs with those of the Germans and the Italians, it is not in order to incite a war, but it is rather, perhaps, a prelude to the harmony of so many nations and to amiable peace.'

(CH) La Folia 12th Ancient Music Festival Rougemont (24-28 may 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Mar 24, 2012

Monteverdi, Mantoue & Italy

“The theme of the festival each year is not an end in itself, a self-imposed restriction to creating a programme, but more of a guiding light that lends a unique color to each edition of the event. “La Folia” is a venue that has made it is possible to encounter early music in all of its facets, a series of concerts over an extended Whitsunday weekend, each “an earful” in itself. The previous festivals offered tours of the great musical traditions in Europe, taking listeners to Flanders, Austria, Bohemia and even to… Switerland! This year we are initiating a series of festivals dedicated to some of the most significant courts in music history: towns where enlightened princes maintained chapels and composers over a number of generations, nurturing the finest of Europe’s music during their golden ages. …”
