In the first half of the 20th century Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) was the big sensation of French classical music. Together with 5 other musicians he formed an informal companionship, Le Group de Six, which rebelled against the impressionism with fresh and Original music. On the occasion of Poulencs 120th birthday we bring you a number of programs with his chamber music, combined with compositions of his friends from the Groupe de Six.
Preceeding the concert you can have dinner in Bistro Het Gerecht. This package starts at 17.30 hrs.
