For my second performance at the Castlemaine State Festival, Harken Well will be presenting a programme of Germanic music from the 17th Century in the Abendmusik tradition. We’ll be joined by all-star continuo section Donald Nicolson (harpsichord) and Nick Pollock (theorbo), in the beautiful Castlemaine Town Hall!
In my final outing at the Castlemaine State Festival, Harken Well will be premiering our Music & Murder programme featuring music written by terrible people. This concert will be presented in two parts: half Renaissance consort and half Baroque trio sonatas.
Harken Well are joined by two very special multi-instrument-wielding guests, John Weretka on harpsichord, tenor viol and voice and Lucy Price on baroque ‘cello and bass viol.
How exciting to be joining my highly esteemed duo partner, the very excellent Ann Morgan, for a programme celebrating fantastical things from the early baroque. Ann and I have been rehearsing up a storm in the country and there are two more duos on the programme: Erkki Veltheim and Anthony Pateras, and Erkki and Simone de Haan, so you should definitely come along.
It’s Holy Week at Scots’ and that means lots of opportunities to see some free musical performances. For Thursday’s Holy Week concert, I’ll be joined by some lovely musicians to present a lunchtime concert of Abendmusik.
The concert is only 45 minutes starting at 1pm so come and check it out in your lunch break!
