Mark Caudle (viol) and Elizabeth Kenny (theorbo).
A tea-time concert by two superb virtuoso players. The programme will include pieces for solo viol by Marin Marais, character pieces by Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe, music from Charles Dollé’s Second Suite, including ‘Le Tombeau pour Marais Le Père’, and movements from Forqueray’s Third Suite. Elizabeth Kenny, one of Europe’s leading lute players, will also play works for solo theorbo by Robert de Visée and for baroque guitar by Francisque Corbetta. Her playing has been described as ‘incandescent’ (Music and Vision) and ‘indecently beautiful’ (Toronto Post).
This is part of The Parley of Instruments’ summer course Le grand siècle, the Baroque week of the Cambridge Early Music Summer Schools, 31 July – 7 August 2011.
