The Acoustic Siestas

A summer variant, the Acoustic Siestas

Near the cloister, when the sun falls in the sky, some deckchairs hold court for a unique experience: Acoustic Siestas. You are given the same equipment as visitors enjoying Spatialised Concerts, and you, too, are enveloped in 3D sound for a moment in the garden that you will share with passionate novices or initiates.
On the programme are Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, or “Pastoral Symphony”, Onslow’s “Cain Doomed or the Death of Abel”, Monteverdi’s Vespers and Handel’s “Dixit Dominus” and “Ode for Saint Cecilia’s Day”.

In 2018: recording of the Voces8 concert.
