Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Latitude 37
Latitude 37 transforms Baroque music to vivid 21st century life.
Listen to sublime contemplative music from the 17th century and beyond as Latitude 37 transforms the Primrose Potter Salon into a specially curated meditative musical experience. Immerse yourself in the earthy timbres of the baroque violin, velvety viola da gamba and organ that weave a tranquil and transfixing spell in this celebration of all that is slow and beautiful. Their critically acclaimed performances have been defined by a keen sense of historical style and virtuosity, creative flair, and a warm rapport with audiences.
About the concert
This program will take you from intricate ornamentations over slowly shifting harmonies by Rognoni, Bassano, and Selma y Salaverde, to works of transcendent loveliness by Cavalli and Erlebach. Nico Muhly’s ‘Slow Twitchy Organs’ brings these special baroque instruments into the 21st century, alongside a calmly contemplative work specially commissioned for Latitude 37 by Australian composer and pianist, Luke Howard.
Praise for Latitude 37
‘Here, at last, is an Australian baroque group that can confidently mix it with the world’s best.’
