Description

The Centre for Early Modern Studies invites you to join them for an early modern Venetian evening of lute music and dance.



Cecilia Nocili (PhD Valladolid, 2008; Laurea Cremona/Pavia, 1997), will deliver her paper, Music and Dance in Fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Venice.

Cecilia Nocilli is Hanna Kiel Fellow of The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies (2017-2018). She was visiting scholar at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and the Universities of Torino and Bologna. She has taught music history, music analysis, performance practice and dance history at the University of Valladolid and the Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Castilla y León. Her work focuses on Renaissance music theory applied to dance, the rhetoric of the music and the body and Derrida’s deconstruction applied to performing arts.



Sam Brown will perform lute music by Francesco Spinacino, Marco dell'Aquila, Vincenzio di Capirola, Francesco da Milano (Renaissance Venetian Music).

A "mystical and mesmeric" performer, Sam Brown has performed worldwide, in venues such as the House of Lords, the Barbican, Seville International Guitar Festival, and the European Lute Festival. In 2015 he gave the Kenyan premiere of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez.

A graduate of the Royal College of Music, Sam latterly trained at the Swiss-Italian Conservatory in Lugano. "A rising star" amongst lutenists, he is a specialist in the lute music of the English Renaissance, and performs frequently with Emma Kirkby's consort Dowland Works.

Presently Sam lives in Bath, UK. His lute was formerly owned by Antony Rooley.



Early Modern Venetian Dance will be performed by King’s Students.



The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
