Latitude 37 explore the diversity of repertoire from Baroque Europe

The members of Baroque trio Latitude 37 were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th-century music. The special combination of Baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord opens up a wealth of repertoire that is rarely explored by other Australian ensembles. Three top graduates of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, the members of Latitude 37 share a unified interest in cultivating and communicating their art with their performance spontaneity inspired by the art of improvisation, communication and the humanity of a genre of music intended to charm and enchant.

Latitude 37 is joined by outstanding violinist Lucinda Moon to tour Bohemia’s woods and fields, exploring the diversity of repertoire from this important part of Baroque Europe. Bohemia, now part of the modern-day Czech Republic, was a visiting ground for many aspiring young musicians from across Europe who were looking to cut their teeth in the music profession. Latitude 37 explores works of exceptional beauty from foreign tourists such as Johannes Pachelbel, who became one of the most influential keyboard musicians back in his native Germany and was a far finer composer than many people today realise, to locally-grown virtuosos such as Heinrich Biber who captivated listeners with his advanced violin techniques and audacious harmonic language.
