Dowland in Dublin
La Nef with Michael Slattery, tenor

A celebration of the Renaissance lute composer John Dowland's Irish connections: La Nef imagines how some of Dowland's tunes would have sounded if played in a 16th-century pub. Working closely with Michael Slattery, they developed a program with a simple, Celtic flavour. Midway between folk songs and art songs, this evening promises to charm!

Clair Obscur (Soft Light)
Pallade Musica

References to light are numerous when speaking of the eighteenth century in France. Clair Obscur refers to a dim or soft light, reflecting Pallade's image of the music -- music of subtle contrasts, combining intimacy and virtuosity. Composers will include Rameau, Forqueray, Couperin and Boismortier. Made up of four of Montreal's most promising Early Music performers, they were Grand Prize winners at the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition in New York, October 2012 - come and hear why!
