MATTHEW WADSWORTH LUTE/THEORBO & CAROLYN SAMPSON SOPRANO

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 London was as diverse and multicultural in the early 1600s as it is today. This programme takes the listener on a rich and colourful journey that embraces not only English culture, but that of Italy and France, as well as a few surprises along the way. Matthew Wadsworth and Carolyn Sampson’s eclectic programme draws on Robert Dowland’s ‘A Musicall Banquet’ and ‘A Varietie of Lute Lessons’, both published in 1610, as well as venturing back a few years to the masterpieces of John Dowland and Robert Johnson. The programme also includes works by Ferrabosco, Monteverdi, Kapsberger and Caccini. ‘Matthew Wadsworth really is a quite extraordinary musician, graceful, civilised and intelligent. He has an enormous ability to draw an audience into his own world’ Early Music Review ‘Carolyn Sampson is radiant, voluptuous and utterly captivating.’ International Record Review 6.45pm Pre-concert talk by Matthew Wadsworth The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm
