In the program "London - Consort goes Wilde", the ensemble Ad Fontes combines consort music of the 17th century (Henry Purcell and Matthew Locke) with arrangements of English folk songs collected at the turn of the century (19th/20th century) by music collectors such as Cecil, among others, during forays through southern England. Intermixed with lyrics from the same period by the dazzling poet Oscar Wilde, interpreted by Berenike Heiter, the audience can look forward to an atmospheric concert experience in which humor, melancholy and subtlety go hand in hand.
