Dazzling performance Sintra Festival (Portugal)

Maarten Engeltjes & PRJCT Amsterdam were guests at the 53rd Festival International de Música de Sintra (Portugal) in September. In the festival a series of concerts is given in September and October, in various venues near the Montagna Mágica, the Magic Mountain near the village of Sintra, about 20 km west of Lisbon.

The concert by Maarten & PRJCT Amsterdam on Sunday 23 September in the enchanting Palácio de Queluz was a sensation. The crowd applauded for a long time for Vivaldi’s Concerto for Strings in F (RV141) and Nisi Dominus (RV608), but the enthusiasm for the Handel arias after the intermission was, if possible, even greater. Perhaps the very highlight was Scherza infida from Handel’s Ariodante, or the encore Ombra mai fu (Xerxes).
