The exact 500th anniversary of Josquin des Prez’ death will be during Laus Polyphoniae 2021. Even in his own time, his person and music were swathed in an aura of magic. As his fame grew, however, so did the number of compositions that were wrongfully attributed to him. As a festival specialising in polyphony, it is almost the duty of a festival like Laus Polyphoniae to show Josquin in a new light. The composer brought a wind of change blowing through Franco-Flemish polyphony. His music is startling in its compositional skill, clear form, melodious sound and the profound relationship between the text and music. Laus Polyphoniae 2021 will be a hybrid festival featuring the widest possible variety of works by Josquin. Ensembles from the Low Countries will perform live concerts, and this year Laus Polyphoniae will be travelling around the world for the very first time! Rather than inviting the international artists to Antwerp, the festival will be streaming them from Tokyo (Japan), Boston (USA) and York (UK). Last but not least, a number of documentaries will put Josquin’s masses into context. You will be able to tune into all the documentaries and live concerts at Laus Polyphoniae 2021 online, free of charge, at www.polyphonyconnects.com. Register now to be sure not to miss any of the festival! Then you will be the first to know when live concerts begin, and you will also receive our exclusive, extensive programme book (while stocks last: delivered free of charge to your door in Belgium, and available in digital form elsewhere or on paper with a delivery charge).
