Event description

Description

Am amazing concert of lute songs by these talented musicians

Just back from several months in Rome to improve her bel canto and spoken Italian Hannah Medlam will be joined by theorbist William Carter and bass violist Charles Medlam (relation) for a concert in Hungerford on February 4th. They will be presenting a programme of lute songs by Purcell, Weldon, Handel, Lambert and Monteverdi, interspersed with bass viol solos by Marin Marais and theorbo music by Kapsberger. The bass viol group will go from the sublime (Marais’ lament for his teacher St. Colombe) to the ridiculous (a description of a bladder stone operation!). The theorbo is the largest of the lute family instruments. William Carter will be playing virtuoso music by Johannes Kapsberger, who in spite of his name was actually Roman and largely responsible for putting the instrument on the map.
