Concert information

Musikfest Berlin



Fascinatingly fragile tonal images: Exaudi is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles with a strong affinity for the outlying margins of new and ancient music. This group of singers can now be experienced at Musikfest Berlin in a late-night concert of chromatically spectacular Renaissance music. In the Papal chapel singer and music theorist Vicente Lusitano an artist is also represented who is now thought likely to be the first Black composer to be published in Europe.
