Latitude 37 explores the richness and variety that can be found in music based on just a few simple chords, and with a Spanish twist!
The members of Baroque trio Latitude 37 were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th-century music.
The 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.
The ‘Folia’ ground bass is one that inspired composers all over Europe during the Baroque period. Colourful, a little exotic and just a bit spicy; it’s a harmonic progression found in works from Ortiz to Corelli and beyond. Latitude 37 explores the richness and variety that can be found in music based on just a few simple chords, and with a Spanish twist! Folias features a new work commissioned by up and coming composer Jorden Heys.
