Early Music @ 1 - Tuesday 14th April
We're delighted to welcome back Dr. Emily Baines who is performing a few pieces on the medieval bagpipes for us. The pieces featured are "Ay mi dame de valour", "Petit Vriens" and "Summer is icumen in" which is in 6 parts, all played by Emily!
Emily is a professional recorder player, lecturer and musical director working throughout Europe also specialising in a wide variety of historical woodwinds. We're looking forward to seeing videos about shawms and crumhorns coming up in the next few weeks!
She trained at the University of Hull, the Koninklijk Conservatorium (The Hague) and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she wrote her doctoral thesis on the role of mechanical musical instruments as sources for eighteenth-century performance practice. Emily is currently preparing a recording of her DMus research for First Hand Records and if you'd like to see some of the theatre work Emily has done you can watch a production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream! Follow Emily on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to find out about upcoming concerts and projects.
