Biography

August 3rd - 12th 2018

MAfestival Brugge is an internationally renowned festival for early music, boasting a daring programme and an innovative outlook on tradition. Every summer, it presents and creates a wide range of activities in the historical setting of Bruges and its surroundings. These activities include a thematic concert series, grounded in a coherent and through-provoking dramaturgy; the prestigious International Competitions Musica Antiqua for young baroque soloists; a series of Fringe concerts for young and promising ensembles; a specialist exhibition of historical instruments; and the musical bikeride VéloBaroque. MAfestival cares about young artists and provides them with intense guidance by drawing on its wide international network. Run by a passionate team, the festival makes a difference through its original approach, embracing and inviting creative reflection on the role of early music in our modern world.

Under the heading Cherchez la femme, MAfestival 2018 tracks female voices in music. They are exceptional voices, of composers, performers, patrons, and muses. But also fictitious voices, articulated by men. Above all, they represent the voice of the modern woman, who more than ever breaks the silence.
