The baroque ensemble from Brussels Les Abbagliati is passionate about discovering 17th and 18th century repertoire. In order to let the audience discover baroque music in a different way the ensemble works together with dancers (Ludovica Mosca) for certain projects, and introduces baroque gestures (coaching by Sigrid ‘t Hooft) in the programs.
The vocal-instrumental ensemble Revue Blanche was founded in 2010 by four young musicians from Brussels who share the same musical ideas. In a unique way Lore Binon (soprano), Anouk Sturtewagen (harp), Kris Hellemans (viola) and Caroline Peeters (flute) are bringing alive European musical heritage from different style periods.

Lute player Sofie Vanden Eynde is active in various artistic fields. From projects early music with viola da gamba player Romina Lischka, tenor Thomas Hobbs, sopranos Lore Bino, and Emma Kirby amongst others, until resonant stories about a shared world in the projects under the name Imago Mundi.
Trio Khaldei unites pianist Barbara Baltussen, violinist Pieter Jansen and cellist Francis Mourey. They have found each other in their passion for chamber music, and the unique sound of the piano trio in particular.
