Andreas Skouras
Englands goldenes Musikzeitalter 1550-1620

Die Blüte englischer Musik ist eng mit der Regentschaft von Elisabeth I. verbunden. In der Musik spiegelt sich aber nicht nur der Aufstieg Englands zur größten Weltmacht, sondern ebenso die politische und religiöse Unruhe der Zeit.

Der Pianist und Cembalist Andreas Skouras, begeisterter Liebhaber und profunder Kenner der elisabethanischen „Virginalmusik“, demonstriert dies anhand live gespielter Beispiele von Werken der großen „Virginalisten“ Tallis, Byrd, Bull u.a.

Between 1993 and 1997, Roger Thomas headed the British team of analysts and weapons experts looking for and destroying Iraqi WMD after the First Gulf War. “In a cat-and-mouse game with Saddam, we took away, incinerated, blew up and destroyed anything connected to WMD that we could find.
