Description

The Lutesong duo (Lente Louw and Uwe Grosser) welcome guest artists Matildie Thom Wium and Vera Vukovic for Canti e Corde: a programme that will showcase almost every possible combination for two voices, two lutes, two theorbos and one baroque guitar. Audiences will have the opportunity to hear well-known works by John Dowland and Claudio Monteverdi accompanied by the instruments they were originally composed for. In addition, the public will be treated to an exploration of the remarkably folk-like sound of other rarely heard masters of the English, Italian and Spanish lutesong genres.
