Qual è più grande o Amore" - Nothing has inspired and inspired artists throughout the ages as much as love. The musical expression of this devotion in 16th century Italy was the madrigal. Highly artistic and yet catchy, some madrigals became real hits - everyone knew and loved them. Almost 100 years after they were written, composers were still composing highly virtuoso arrangements of them.

Maximilian Ehrhardt, one of the leading international specialists for historical harps, and Juliane Laake, who has been one of the leading gambists for years, have taken on this timeless, highly beguiling music with virtuosity and expression.

Experience these touching Renaissance love songs and their virtuoso arrangements full of sensuality in the enchanting instrumentation of viola da gamba and harp in an authentic Renaissance venue: the historic Bohlenstube in the Handel House!
