Friday 6 June 2014 21:00 - 23:00 The German Church

After 35 years of international activity and 40 CD-recordings, the Ensemble Gilles Binchois, conducted by Dominique Vellard, has assumed a special status among interpreters of sacred music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Associated with an excellent timbre and a dense vocal beauty, the ensemble tackles monody as well as polyphony with the same brilliance. In this concert the Spanish Golden Age is mainly represented by the 15th century composer Francisco de Peñalosa, one of his era´s most prolific composers, and his adorably beautiful mass  "Nunca fue pena mayor".

Ticket prices: 100-330 SEK. Student discount tickets can only be purchased at SEMF's ticket office during the festival 4-8 June

The Ensemble is supported by the French Ministry of Culture, the Regional Cultural Affairs Directorate in Burgundy and the Regional Council of Burgundy and the City of Dijon.
