Cambridge Early Music Concerts 2013

FIRE: PASSION IN THE ART OF THE LUTE SONG

Joel Frederiksen (bass, lute, archlute)

3.00pm, Sunday 14 April, 2013
Queens' College Long Gallery, Cambridge
Tickets:  £15.00,  £12.00
 
Joel Frederiksen's concert during the first Festival of the Voice caused a sensation. The American basso profundo returns to Cambridge for a recital of works by Campion, Dowland, Caccini, Kapsberger, Lanier and Henry Lawes. He includes a work written for him by American composer Laurence Traiger, to a text based on the words of architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
By kind permission of Lord and Lady Eatwell, this concert offers a rare opportunity to hear inspired music-making in the Long Gallery of the President's Lodge at Queens' College.
He has at his disposal an astonishing range of vocal registers and styles, virtuosically ornamental and with powerful diction....truly amazing. [Donaukurier]
