Description

The Cape Consort celebrates Barbara Strozzi’s 400th birthday with an all-female Baroque composer’s programme. Highlights of Strozzi’s rich oeuvre of over 100 published compositions are presented together with music by Francesca Caccini, Isabella Leonarda, Bianca Maria Meda and Chiara Margarita Cozzolani. Tessa Roos and Nathan Julius, two South African singers, currently furthering their studies in Early Music at the renowned Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland, are joining Antoinette Blyth with solo pieces, duets and a trio accompanied by basso continuo and two violins.
