The loan is unique and rarely leaves the National Archives, but an exception was made for this exhibition.
Baroque Fridays @ Lutherse Kerk (15 February)
Two organ solos in the last program and the audience held their breath in awe. Víctor Manuel Baena de la Torre stood out in Pracht en Praal, in which students from Schütz’s Amsterdam Conservatory performed contemporaries from the balconies of the Lutheran Church. The baroque music in surround under the direction of Jos van Veldhoven made a big impression last season. But the two solo pieces from Víctor Manuel Baena de la Torre excelled with tasteful recordings, balanced play and sublime timing.
