The Theater of Music

  • Medley Hall 48 Drummond Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia

We're delighted to welcome the London-based Australian tenor Daniel Thomson for a performance of our English baroque program, which explores the weird and wonderful world of English music in the seventeenth century. From the sublime to the downright silly, songs by John Blow, Nicholas Lanier, Henry Lawes and Henry Purcell celebrate the colour and playfulness of the English language. The lyricism and vocality of the bowed strings of Laura Moore (viol) and Elizabeth Welsh (baroque violin) combine with the plucked sonorities of the triple harp and theorbo of Ensemble 642 to illuminate the quirky counterpoint and ravishing textures in consort music by Matthew Locke and the English 'Father of Musick' William Lawes. 

Artists:
Hannah Lane - triple harp
Nicholas Pollock - theorbo, lute, baroque guitar
Daniel Thomson - tenor
Laura Moore - viol
Elizabeth Welsh - baroque violin
