Concert:
Piva


Measure for Measure – Music from Shakespeare’s Time

This popular show has been developed to celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in 2016.  Shakespeare wrote for all of society – from the courtiers who paid handsomely for the best seats in the theatre through to the servants paying a penny to stand as groundlings in the pit.  Piva will be reflecting this by performing pieces which run the gamut from village green to stately court and rowdy tavern to country house. As with any Piva show, they bring the period alive with stories and tales about life in Shakespeare’s theatre

Tickets £12.00

Formed in 2002, Piva are one the UK’s leading early music ensembles specialising  in the popular dance and ballad music of the late renaissance.  Playing an array of period instruments, their fresh, innovative and energetic approach has captured the imagination of audiences wherever they perform.   They present lively and entertaining shows with a unique blend of music and anecdote.  Multi-instrumentalists, with backgrounds in renaissance, classical, jazz and roots music, they combine their influences to create music of the past played for today.

Society of Recorder Players

 

Francesca Clements and Olwen Foulkes - Recorders

 

The Society of Recorder Players Walter Bergmann Fund (WBF) exists to help young people in their development as recorder players. Recently, grants have been made towards the cost of organising days for young recorder players, purchase of instruments, and course fees. Awards are available to applicants up to the age of thirty years but there is no lower age limit.
Francesca Clements and Olwen Foulkes are recent beneficiaries of a WBF grant, and will demonstrate the versatility and talent of young recorder players. By supporting young players in this way, the SRP is furthering its goal to promote the study, practice and appreciation of the recorder to young players who may not otherwise have this opportunity.

 “Mortensen’s energetic and characterful direction from the harpsichord inspired a rich, colourful sound, with gracefully arching phrases: there was nothing flashy, just elegant, tasteful playing from EUBO.” Jane Shuttleworth, Bachtrack
