PRJCT Amsterdam and Maarten Engeltjes

We often turn our heads to Bach for the great masterpieces of the Baroque, but let’s not forget about Vivaldi. His Gloria is compact but has it all – from superhuman, majestic euphoria and elusive mystery, to the most down-to-earth of human emotions. Bach cantates, Carrissimi, and Händel lead this program towards Vivaldi.   
The rapidly rising PRJCT Amsterdam is a young Baroque ensemble lead by countertenor Maarten Engeltjes. Soprano Elisabeth Hetherington is also making a name for herself, playing both Baroque and contemporary music at de Doelen this season. PRJCT Amsterdam played at de Doelen before, together with Andreas Scholl.
