Category:koor, ensemble (vocaal)
1995 - 2019
Genre(s):21ste eeuw / hedendaags, 20ste eeuw, romantiek


Aquarius (previously called Goeyvaerts Consort) borrows its name from the opera of Karel Goeyvaerts (1923-93), perhaps the most important Belgian composer after 1950, and represents innovation, adventure, internationalism, erudition and spirituality. In the past the choir was chiefly concerned with performing the twentieth-century vocal repertoire: from the early classics to postmodern pieces: the type of music which, because of its degree of difficulty, is rarely heard, and includes unknown masterpieces. Nowadays they combine new music with well-known works from the past. The choir also organises thematic concerts, portraits, creations and multimedia projects. The repertoire includes music by Pärt, Gorecki, Sigurbjörnsson, Vaughan Williams, Ligeti, Tormis, Eisler, Escher, MacMillan and many others. Flemish choir music and creations occupy pride of place in the repertoire.
