Soprano Jeanine De Bique, hailing from Trinidad, is described as “one of the most exciting sopranos to catch onstage these days.”
Like Holland Baroque, Jeanine De Bique is artistically curious and versatile. Latin-Caribbean Afro rhythms dance alongside dazzling arias; this will be a breathtaking evening. Baroque arias effortlessly alternate with Caribbean folk songs. Jeanine De Bique, “technically flawless … with the light, starry voice that soars before landing on audiences’ ears like a musical meteor shower” (Operawire) possesses a pure and endless richness of colour and nuance. The musicians of Holland Baroque deliver what they are celebrated for: refined arrangements and energetic, daring ensemble playing. They consistently show that baroque music is not old, it is contemporary.
