With “a wonderfully full yet transparent sound” and “expressive detail that [is] wholly absorbing,” (Gramophone) Belgium’s Ricercar Consort performs in Philadelphia for the very first time. The ensemble is known for its profound and rigorous exploration of Baroque repertoire in both its significant catalog of recordings and enthralling performances around the world. Joined by the Grammy®-nominated soprano Céline Scheen, the program, entitled The Virgin’s Teares, features works by Vivaldi, Monteverdi, Purcell, Handel and more that were inspired by the Virgin Mary and themes of joy, anger, doubt and despair.

Soprano Céline Scheen, 
Violin Josef Zak & Augustin Lusson
Violone Benoît Vanden Bemden
