In the post-Renaissance period, the lamento established a place for itself in both vocal and instrumental music.

Café Zimmermann invites its longstanding partner, the countertenor Damien Guillon, to perform a programme of lamenti from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which gives equal prominence to instruments and voice on a journey through the German-speaking lands. In the past few seasons the countertenor Damien Guillon has established himself as one of the leading interpreters of Baroque music. Widely admired for his musicality and his luminous and exceptionally pure vocal timbre, he is regularly invited to perform as a soloist under the direction of celebrated conductors.
