The Gamut of Viols
8pm, Sunday 21 November
34 Breese St, Brunswick
Open your ears to the sounds of the 16th and 17th century where the Viol flourished in England and on the European continent. A tapestry of interwoven lines that produce a harmonious whole, the sound of the Viol is both captivating and intriguing. So much so that it has inspired a host of contemporary composers to write for the instrument.
Utilising the varied shapes and forms of the Viol, Melbourne’s Consortium of Viols will showcase the Eras and Sound World of an instrument rich in history.
The programme is wide ranging, and includes works by Jenkins, Purcell, Mico, Green, Bishop, Hume and Isaac.
Tempo Rubato is a FABULOUS and fun chamber venue, so you should totally not miss this one. There is a bar, and all profits go towards providing music lessons for kids though the Piano Project. What’s not to love about any of that!
