Tuesday 4th June 1pm
University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel
Concerto Caledonia continue our lunchtime exploration of music history with a programme of British music written between 1550 and 1650.
Specialists in performing on the instruments of this time, Concerto Caledonia are masters of adventure and discovery. They will find music that you've never heard of, by composers that even the geekiest of music lovers have only fleetingly come across, written for instruments that haven't been in use for centuries...and they will make it come alive! Invention and experimentation is rife throughout music history, and Concerto Caledonia can be guaranteed to produce something to stun you.
The programme will include music by Tobias Hume, Orlando Gibbons and John Jenkins, as well as anonymous tunes and variations from the Leyden and Blaikie manuscripts and John Playford’s Division Violin.
