  • This quintet of Belgian musicians revisits the treasures and nuggets of traditional Flemish music with the festive energy of folk-rock. An invigorating re-reading, driven by a single watchword: party!

    These five young virtuosos first arranged the eighteenth-century tune of a Flemish carilloneur from Antwerp with an idea of genius: swapping the viola da gamba and other harpsichords for a baritone sax, an acoustic guitar, a Flemish bagpipe and an accordion, all in a formidable agreement....
    This quintet of Belgian musicians revisits the treasures and nuggets of traditional Flemish music with the festive energy of folk-rock. An invigorating re-reading, driven by a single watchword: party!

    These five young virtuosos first arranged the eighteenth-century tune of a Flemish carilloneur from Antwerp with an idea of genius: swapping the viola da gamba and other harpsichords for a baritone sax, an acoustic guitar, a Flemish bagpipe and an accordion, all in a formidable agreement. The Wör musical adventure had begun! Curious and passionate, they went to Antwerp, Leuven, Ghent or Brussels to find old manuscripts to resurrect a repertoire of beautiful musical pieces, dedicated to dances and popular festivals of the late 18th century.

    The eminently contemporary instrumentation of Wör's five creative musicians breathes new life into these little-known gems, most of which were written in French and were intended at the time for the twirling parties and farandoles at the foot of the mills.
