An Archive of Love at Concertgebouw Brugge

Nothing is more unique than love. But... Claudio Monteverdi was already hunting Amor in Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi, Claude Vivier was frolicking with Eros in his Love Songs, and José Sanchez-Verdu captured Thanatos – courier of the underworld – in Scriptura Antigua. In Annelies Van Parys' Ah, cette fable an angel gets entangled in an earthly love. As all these little tragedies unfold, the collective archive of love resonates more and more. Echoes attach themselves to these new stories and push them in fresh directions.
