In the beginning of December, the Estonian-German baroque ensemble „focus baroque“ – Iren Lill (harpsichord) and Holger Faust-Peters (viola da gamba) – gave three concerts in Germany. Concerts entitled „Avec Privilège du Roy“ took place in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Bergisch Gladbach.
At these three concerts, Iren Lill and Holger Faust-Peters performed solo and chamber music by the French composers who worked in the courts of Louis XIV and Louis XV. Concerts were very successful.
Holger Faust-Peters and Iren Lill have played together since 2004. Duo’s repertoire mainly consists of music from the Baroque period but they have also performed pieces by contemporary composers. In February 2010, “focus baroque” released CD “Anno 1698” under the record company ARS Produktion. Their second CD will be out in January, 2012.
