Baroque awe of the forces of Nature
Peter Van Heyghen conductor - Vox Luminis , Les Muffatti
Georg Friedrich Händel, Ode for St Cecilia’s Day, HWV 76
Georg Philipp Telemann, Donnerode, TWV 6:3
The Baroque age was fascinated by nature and its most varied manifestations - especially when they were violent. Storms, tempests, earthquakes, and volcanoes are all to be found in the works of many composers, both instrumental and vocal. Les Muffatti and Vox Luminis follow in the footsteps of Handel and Telemann, bringing this expressive and original world to life in music.
