deBuren, Leopoldstraat 6, 1000 Brussels

Countertenor Oscar Verhaar (NL) and lute player Michiel Niessen (NL) perform music by Constantijn Huygens (The Hague, 1596-1687) and contemporaries. Besides being a politician, Huygens was a major poet and composer, and his versatile and emotionally-charged music was much loved at the Brussels' court of archduke Leopold Willem of Austria. The programme includes music by Huygens himself, Claudio Monteverdi, Guilio Caccini and others.
