Program with exciting mandolin and guitar music from the baroque period up to the 21th century. In this Gerda Abts has an ensemble together with Pieter Van Tichelen and her students mandolin form the Higher Academy: Marte De Leeuw, Johan Corrales and Saar Wijns, as well as the guitarists whom play with Pieter and Marte in duo: Johan Dias and Sam Vertommen.
They perform work by Raffaele Calace, Sylvius Leopold Weiss, Herbert Baumann, Francesco Piccone, Hermann Ambrosius and Carlos Munier. In addition they play an inedited anomynous work Pieter Van Tichelen has discovered as musicologist. This ensemble plays in an ever alternating strength: solo, duo, trio or ensemble. Together with the very varying repertory this concert is quite versatile and got a tremendous enthousiast applause.
the repertory of this ensemble is very extended and can be adapted to the demand. Gerda Abts and her sensemble also join forces with the " Brasschaats mandolineorkest" conducted by Marcel De Cauwer.
