Lieder and mélodies from Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands
The Luxembourg soprano Mady Bonert, who has lived and worked in Flanders (Belgium) since her studies, is well placed to introduce us to the musical creation of the Benelux countries with their unparalleled linguistic diversity. You will hear pieces in French, Dutch, German and Luxembourgish, including several different versions of Paul Verlaine's very famous poems "L'heure exquise" and "En sourdine". You will be surprised by the diversity of colours and styles of this era of the late 19th and first half of the 20th century.
