Paul Van Nevel’s October seminars :
from Leoninus to Lassus

With this series of seminars we offer comprehensive training to all lovers of polyphonic music, semi-professional and professional musicians. The seminars are not dry musicological lectures, but stem from Paul Van Nevel’s ‘polyphonic life’ of 50 years, thereby providing unusual insights and original perspectives.

!!! ATTENTION !!!  PENTECOST FESTIVAL 2020 POSTPONED

Pentecost Festival 2021 !
21 - 22 - 23 May 2021 !
The Huelgas Ensemble in Talant (Burgundy)
Artistic director : Paul Van Nevel 

The Huelgas Ensemble is a cultural ambassador for Flemish heritage

Unfortunately, after the overwhelming success of the first Huelgas festival in Talant in 2019, the second festival of 2020 cannot take place, due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. As a result of this force majeure, the Huelgas Ensemble is left with no choice but to postpone the festival to 2021. The programme of the Pentecost weekend 2021 (21-23 May) will be exactly that of 2020. We therefore invite you in advance to this celebration of polyphony: Talant 2020 est mort, vive Talant 2021!

A new book by Paul Van Nevel:
Het landschap van de polyfonisten - The world of the Franco-Flemish School (1400-1600)

Why did the polyphonists all come from the same region of southwest Belgium and northern France? And and what was the influence of this region on their music? A unique analysis of the environment - the ‘cultural landscape’ - of the 15th and 16th-century musician. The book includes a CD and no fewer than 168 beautiful photographs.

Klassiek. Paul Van Nevel. Huelgas Ensemble. Simone de Bonefont - Missa pro mortuis - Cypres
" (...) Dit is een keizerlijk contrapunt met melodieën die slingeren als lianen, zich verstrengelen tot een complex kluwen en via meesterlijk geregisseerde cesuren terugkeren naar hun nulpunt. Alleen koele kikkers blijven onbewogen bij de adembenemende dissonanten, de bezwerende eb van de polyfonie en de overgave van een ensemble in ...
