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.

Guest artist Simon Martyn-Ellis (theorbo) and Latitude 37 delve into the world of Italian lutenist Johann Hieronymus Kapsberger. One of the most inventive and feted lutenists of all time, his works span many genres and represent some of the most lovely and evocative music to come out of Italy in the early 17th century. From pastoral yet beautiful villanelle and timeless toccatas, graceful ciacconas and stately passacaglias to lively canarios, Latitude 37 revels in the evocative and colourful timbres of its period instruments, with gut strings both plucked and bowed blending artfully with the resonance of the harpsichord.
