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.
