Concert: Joglaresa


Songes of Sinne and Subversioun

Joglaresa - coming of age in 2013 and 'bringing anarchy and sensuality back into medieval music' (because life can be just as low in Latin...).

In these times of sleaze, MPs' expenses, the fall of bankers from grace, and controversial wars in the Middle East, Joglaresa (long deemed to be early music's 'bit of rough') presents medieval songs of Illicit affairs and seductions, biting criticisms of bankers, politicians, bishops, and conflict in the Middle East... all delivered with Joglaresa’s inimitable energy, danger and, above all, FUN!

Founded by Trevor Pinnock in 1973, The English Concert were trailblazers in “historically informed” performances of baroque repertoire. They very quickly established a worldwide reputation for the expressive vitality and technical quality of their music-making, and are seen as one of Britain's leading period instrument ensembles.. In the year of their 40th anniversary Trevor Pinnock is returning as director/harpsichordist and we are very excited to be able to promote this concert at the 2013 Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival and Exhibition.
