In the opening concert of this third edition of the International Martini Organ Competition Groningen everything revolves around the cornetto, the historical wooden wind instrument. In sixteenth-century Western Europe, the cornetto was the pacesetter at every musical event: a party was not a party if it did not include a cornetto player. The Swiss wind quartet Les Cornets Noirs includes two cornetti, so party is guaranteed at this concert.
With the program ‘Venetiaanse Pracht’ (‘Venetian Splendor’) the four wind musicians play the entire space of the Martinikerk and also make music in accompaniment with the two organs that are in this church: organists Leo van Doeselaar and Erwin Wiersinga play on both the large Martini organ and the recently restored choir organ.
