Today Monteverdi on percussion, tomorrow Monteverde pure and unadulterated? Mozart on a grand piano, or would you prefer him pianoforte? Händel à la hip-hop, Bach on spalla? You name it!
These days, old music features on every concert menu, in all kinds of disguises. Centuries-old music for everyone: it was not always the done thing, but nowadays, it's just normal. Or is it …? For the future of old music does not seem without pitfalls. Besides worldly worries – the crisis of the record industry, cut-throat competition and an aging audience to name but a few - it is facing essential matters of faith: should the historic repertoire allow the past to be brought back to life, or should it look for new incentives for today's audiences? The debate has kept the international music scene in its grip for over half a century. In Flanders, pioneers such as René Jacobs, Jos van Immerseel and Sigiswald Kuijken broke new ground and set out beacons for new generations to follow, or not. Their laboratory for 50 years: Musica Antiqua | MAfestival. In this book, young, and less young, lions take us through festival history, for a look at the past, present and future of early music.
