Musica ad Rhenum and baritone Matin Koningsberger in secular works by Campra, Couperin, Gullemain, and Quirinus van Blankenburg (!) We continue our long and fruitful association with our partners at Radio Netherlands in presenting a series of concerts from the 2010 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht. We direct listeners to their web site, which will provide more in-depth information about the music and performers we hear as well as more information about the festival: www.rnwclassical.com The primary theme for 2010 was a celebration of the French Baroque in collaboration with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles.
