Peter Sheppard Skærved continues his exploration of the 17th Century violin, inspired by the astonishing architecture of London's Square Mile. Musical counterpoints to the artistry of Wren, Hawksmoor and Hooke, selected from work of violin makers and composers whose work flooded London in the years following the Great Fire of 1666

St Mary Aldemary is an extraordinary melange, essentially showing Wren and Hawksmoor experimenting with the gothic splendour of the late 15th century, seen from their very particular standpoints. Peter counterpoints this amazing space and architecture, with anonymous works from two late 17th Century sources from Klagenfurt and Strasbourg. The element of mystery around these works is enhanced by the colour and inventiveness of their writing, which makes use of multiple tunings 'Scordaturae' of the instruments. The concert will be played on a soprano violin by Antonio Stradivari (1685), and a violin by Girolamo Amati (1629)

Balancing these works from the 17th Century, Ezra Pound explores a 15th century song by Pétrus Convitortio, and Gregory Rose's dazzling studies find their way among the Wren's fanvaulting and architectural caprices


Next concert in the series: Preludes & Vollenteries 5: St Botolph's Bishopsgate 3rd November 6pm
