Event Description

A plainchant festival in itself is nothing new, but CANTO APERTO certainly is. CANTO APERTO focuses on the diversity of both the repertory and its performance practice, on the diversities of regional traditions and their evolutions over time. No century is eschewed: the chant repertory composed over a period of 1,500 years knew different concepts and manners of performance in every century of its existence. This approach makes CANTO APERTO a unique festival in the Benelux and in Europe.

CANTO APERTO: international

The performance of, and research into chant attracts considerable attention from all over the world. The International Musicological Society has its own Study Group, "Cantus Planus", dedicated to chant, and the study of chant is mostly represented at musicological conferences, such as Kalamazoo (US), Leeds (UK), Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference (varying locations). Master classes, courses, workshops, and festivals are being organized all over Europe; ensembles specializing in 'early music' have a growing interest in the chant repertory of various periods. CANTO APERTO connects to this worldwide enthusiasm for chant and aims at contributing to an even more diversified palette of chant performance and programming.
