– Storms are raging, outside and in music!

Today heavy stormwinds are raging; Ciara is coming!

Therefore the video with “The storms break their chains” (LES VENTS BRISENT LEURS CHAÎNES) by composer Jean-Bodin de Boismortier suits very well!

Les vents brisent leurs chaînes. The storms break their chains

Quel fracas; quel horreur! Such misfortune, such horror!!

Leurs bryantes haleines répandent la terreur. Their wheezing spreads fear and terror

Les plus superbes chênes cèdent à leur fureur. The proud oak trees give in to the fury

Kind greetings,

Marijke Persijn

– Five years MaGMa Trio!

Click and order

Our MaGMa Trio celebrates its fifth anniversary! Our first Lustrum! We will enjoy this by giving a concert in the church of Dochamps. In the new year. In the winter of January 2020. We hope to welcome all of you on Sunday 26 January 2020 at 16.00 hrs.

Do you still remember what the church looks like? In the time that passed it only has gained beauty through the restauration of the beautiful painting in the choir of the church!

Do you still remember its acoustics? Because of this it has become one of our favourite churches to perform in!

We like to share a video with you of a part of our concert “MaGMa Trio chants Love” which we gave on 7 October 2017 in this Church of Saints Peter-and-Paul of Dochamps. Just to refresh your memory a bit. And because we love the music ourselves as well!

In that programme we brought a cantata by Jean-Bodin de Boismortier (1691-1755): Diane et Actéon.

During our concert “Wintersilence” we once more will pay tribute to this composer by bringing an aria from “L’Hyver / The Winter” from his “Les quatre saisons / The four seasons”. A real winter aria.

Please write the date in your agendas or, even better, immediately reserve your seats through clicking on the poster above!

Hope to see you soon!
