Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ is the traditional English bridal rhyme, ending with and a silver sixpence in her shoe. Five little things, often pieces of clothes, small presents or even heirlooms to bring good luck to the bride. Something old stands for tradition and family, something new for a hopeful future and forthcoming happiness, something borrowed reminds the bride of all her friends, always ready to advise and assist, and something blue symbolises the love and fidelity of the new couple. And finally a silver sixpence to bring wealth.
The match between Holland Baroque Society and Eric Vloeimans has a little of both. One of the marriage partners – leaving aside who is the bride and who the groom – stands firmly in the world of the Baroque but pricks up its ears to the sounds of today. The other is a magician on the trumpet, improvising, composing, listening and ever ready to learn. A marriage between two such different partners inevitably blurs boundaries and makes time flow. The trumpet, bandoneon and historical instruments merge to create a colourful present for all listeners, like the icing on a wedding cake.
