Flying Dutchman Sessions

Details

Evergreen Ensemble bridges the gap between folk music and Baroque music.

Known for its virtuosic programs bringing together the best of Australia’s early music talent and folk icons, it weaves stories back through time, rediscovering the sounds of folk melodies performed on period instruments.

The year is 1730 and a musical session is underway at the Flying Dutchman tavern in the Hague. Players from the four corners of Europe have crossed paths bringing together a colourful array of Baroque and folk repertoire. Special guest Krishna Nagaraja joins Evergreen Ensemble on Baroque viola – so draw up a chair next to the player’s table and enjoy a glass as Evergreen Ensemble transport you back through musical time.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Evergreen Ensemble
