Event description

Description

Warwickshire Museum has an original and incredibly rare lute. The lute, an early type of stringed instrument, was one of the primary instruments of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and was made in Bologna by German-born luthier Hans Frei over 450 years ago. Frei is considered one of the closest lute equivalents of 'Stradivarius', making the Warwick lute extremely special and unique.

Join art historian and lutenist Adam Busiakiewicz for an engaging talk on the history of the Warwickshire Museum lute, interspersed with live lute music performed on a faithful reproduction. Music will include pieces composed during the instrument's creation in mid sixteenth century Italy, and other melodies composed by contemporary British lutenists and composers.

Attendees will have a chance to browse the museum's new displays before and after the presentation.
