HaftCraft starts this season with a new project 7 TEARS, based on the’7 Lacrimae’ of John Dowland. Mark Raidpere, was commissioned to provide a breathtaking theme of moving and static images. Top composer Tõnu Kõrvits, also from Estonia, is making his own reflection on Dowland's Lachrimae. In collaboration with the Astria Oboe Trio and enriched by the sounds of the archlute, this performance is played by the entire family of double reed instruments: oboe, oboe d'amore, English horn, bassoon and contrabassoon.

-Yf Bourry: oboe d’amore
-Dimitri Mestdag: english horn
-Bert Helsen: bassoon
