Event details

For more than a decade, Baroque trio Latitude 37 has been giving exquisite and authentic performances of 17th and 18th-century music.

The combination of Baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord provides a wealth of fascinating, rarely heard repertoire. The trio has become a favourite on the Australasian early music scene with critically acclaimed performances characterised by the marriage of scholarship with virtuosity, creative flair and a warm rapport with audiences.

Venice, the jewel of Europe during the Baroque era, birthplace of opera and home to the most sophisticated of courtiers and the grandeur of St Mark’s Basillica. Venice was for centuries one of the great musical centres of the world and composers from all over Europe made pilgrimage there throughout the 17th century, taking home the Italian style and lashings of inspiration. Baroque specialist Latitude 37 presents virtuosic instrumental Venetian works by Castello and Cavalli, and explores the influence of the Venetian musical style through the fascinating prism of rarely heard music by two fine German composers who spent time in and were inspired by Venice, Krieger and Rosenmüller.
