In the project ‘Glorious Bodies’, the artist Sophie Langhor places portraits of statues of the apostelen of the St Nicholas Church in Eupen (made in Cologne by sculptor  Gérémie Geisselbrunn (1595 – 1660) in 1642) against images of current models and stars.

Fascinated by these images, violist and composer Paul Pankert composed a number of new works that relate in a similar way to earlier works for harpsichord by Giramolo Frescobaldi (1583 – 1643), for recorder by Jacob van Eyck (1590 – 1657) and for violin by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber (1644-1704), using current composition techniques, including sound transformation and spatialization in real time by electronic manipulation.

La pièce Three Ravens by the belgian composer and flautist Gregory d’Hoop is also based on an old English ballad published in 1611. Gregroy d’Hoop himself will perform this work. 

During the concert a series of diptychs by Sophie Langhor will be shown.
