Deutsche Welle Festival Concert

Who isn't awed by the crashing of waves, or calmed by the babbling of a brook? Composers have been inspired by the sound of water for centuries, trying to capture its multitudes in their music. In a concert dedicated to water, Herne's "Tage alter Musik" festival, a premiere early music festival, offers a splendidly diverse selection of Baroque music on the theme of water. The Collegium Marianum, a top Czech period ensemble, presents Telemann's clever frog-filled violin concerto, French Versailles court composer Delalande's fountain dance music, and a suite from Händel's famous "Water Music," among numerous other pieces.
