Theuns

Concerto a Venezia

Ducal-Palace,-Venice,-C.1755

During the month of October Frank Theuns and ensemble Les Buffardins will record a new ACCENT – CD  in AMUZ. After German and French flute concerto’s the triptych will now be completed with Italian flute concerto’s.

The ensemble Les Buffardins meets up only every two or three years for a short week, in preparation of a new recording, after which the group spreads out again.  It makes a live concert with Les Buffardins  a very special event, you don’t want to miss.

The project ‘Concerto a Venezia’ will give you the occasion to hear the musicians during a small concert tour. Initially five concerts were planned, but due to some bad coincidence two concerts had to be canceled.

This makes the upcoming three concerts even more precious !

We like to share the calendar of the upcoming concert tour of October 2017 with you.
