Matthew Horsley & Ryan Williams Duo

A French Feast

Horsley Williams

Details

Experience the beguiling sounds of the French Baroque

The music of the royal French court during the 17th and 18th centuries was often inspired by folk song and melodies of the countryside. Horsley & Williams Duo, along with their special guests, reinterpret a selection of this music on their unique combination of instruments.

New works by acclaimed Australian composers Samuel Smith and Samantha Wolf shift the perception of sonority during the performance and complement the beguiling sounds that are ever present in the French Baroque.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Horsley & Williams Duo
