Big Bang LX19
A wheel and a song of fairies
Ensemble 258 (Portugal)
At this early music concert, five musicians-instrumentalists/singers take us on a journey into the past in order to get to know the music composed in the time of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth I, when women wore corsets and men wore tights. Although the sixteenth-century clothing may seem unsuitable for the modern day, the same cannot be said of the work of some composers from the period. In this show, created by Joana Bagulho and Maria Bayley, we get to know the music of Thomas Morley, John Dowland, William Byrd, John Wilbye and Antony Holborne.
