“Thrilling from the first to last bar!” wrote Klaus Linsenmeyer in the Mannheimer Morgen newspaper about the appearance of the Flemish ensemble B’Rock at the Würzburg Mozart Festival. Under the direction of Dmitry Sinkovsky, who is an equally successful violinist, conductor and countertenor, and the soprano Robin Johannsen, whose impressive voice and vocal technique audiences in Halle have already been able to appreciate, we can expect a flood of magnificent music from the pen of the Halle-born composer. Flanked by the lively Water Music and the cracking Music for the Royal Fireworks, the pastoral cantatas of the Arcadians focus on grand passion: that of spurned love.
