Nieuwe Muziek voor Oude Instrumenten
Gregg Kowalsky / R. Keenan Lawler / Stephan Mathieu / Jozef van Wissem / Die Urpf Lanze
Our favorite lute player Jozef van Wissem conceived and put together this festival in order to “update” historical instruments such as the renaissance lute. He accomplishes this by composing new music and then brings these instruments into dialogue with contemporary music and instruments, such as laptop, field recordings and electronics.
Van Wissem invites Greg Kowalski (Laptop) R. Keenan Lawler (resonator guitar), Stephan Matthieu (virginal) and Die Urpf Lanze (guitar). He also gives a lecture on ‘The Liberation of the Lute’.
