Madrigalen van Gesualdo

Since Domestica started playing in the Laurenskerk, she has performed instrumental arrangements by Jan Willem Nelleke of the beautiful (originally vocal) music of Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa (1566 – 1613). In abandoning harmonic rules, Gesualdo was way ahead of his time. This was not much followed in his own time, but today there is more attention for his music. It sounds very modern.

However, the beauty of Gesualdo's music stands in stark contrast to his life story as a sneaky killer. We have already performed the music, but we have never told anyone about Gesualdo's exciting life before. Until now. Elena Peeters will tell the story at this concert. For the musical performance, the old arrangements are dusted off and we expand the collection with new arrangements. A student from Codarts will add a new composition, inspired by Gesualdo's work.
