Combining the gorgeous, warm tones of lute and viola da gamba with an enchanting soprano voice these internationally renowned artists will share a programme of exquisite arias, madrigals and instrumentals including works by Dowland, Monteverdi, Purcell and Telemann. Recreating the musical landscapes of the Jacobean English drawing room and the salons of Venice, music, poetry and song intertwine in what will truly be an intimate and captivating concert. ‘A wonderfully accomplished and appealing baroque interpreter’ (The Guardian on Anna Dennis) ‘Nordberg’s playing is exceptional, his flawless technique removing any limits on interpretation’ (Fanfare) ‘Defying expectations’ (New York Times on Liam Byrne).
Join composer David Coonan at Rothe House, Kilkenny on 29 November. David will offer insight into his compositional process and share the inspiration behind his new commission written especially for this tour.
