The 13th A CAPPELLA Festival in Leipzig will start this evening with a concert given by Amarcord. Singers of the most varied nature from Estonia, Canada, Austria, Poland and Spain can be heard there. Early music by Lassus and Ockeghem, folk and traditional music from Scandinavia and the Baltic countries, film music and jazz are on the programme.
Tonight's opening concert at the Gewandhaus, as well as two more concerts of the coming A CAPPELLA Week, will be recorded by Deutschlandfunk and broadcast in early May. The sound engineers of GENUIN are once again responsible for providing excellent tone quality.
Here's to a great start of the Festival!
