CONTENT COURTESY THE PIANO PROJECT
Baroque Ensemble Latitude 37 in conjunction with Tempo Rubato join forces to present live classical music in a Brunswick warehouse.
Tempo Rubato is a live classical music venue that donates all of its profits to the Piano Project, a Melbourne charity raising funds for children who are new immigrants to receive music lessons.
Named the “Father of Music” by the King of England, William Lawes (1602-1645) stands as one of the most inventive English composers of the 17th Century. Period instrument specialists Latitude 37 are joined by triple harpist Hannah Lane and theorbo player Nick Pollock to present some of Lawes’ most exquisite yet rarely performed works in this concert of Lawes’ Harp Consorts.
Featuring a combination of harp, bass viol, violin and theorbo, Lawes’ works for this blend of instruments results a wonderful musical interplay between these unusual instruments. The two plucked and two bowed instruments together create a special soundscape, with each instrument having its own independent part in a delicately balanced texture.
Latitude 37 is an exciting baroque trio whose members were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th Century music.
This is an opportunity to hear baroque music played outside of the concert halls in an intimate way, and all for an important cause. It’s about making sublime music accessible and interesting for a new audience who may never thought of going to a concert like this.
All profits from this event go to Piano Project – a Melbourne-based charity that sponsors piano lessons for children who are new immigrants. You can read more about this project in our interview with its founder.
