Metamorphosis
Music for lute and theorbo by Kapsberger, Dowland and Nico Muhly

Kapsberger’s Il Primo Libro d’Intavolatura di Liuto appeared in 1611, the same year as Robert Dowland’s A Varietie of Lute Lessons.  In both books, old and new voices collide; mellifluous counterpoint slides towards improvisatory harmony and back again. Lutes themselves were changing:  the new theorbo or chitarrone added visual drama and an extended bass range, but it continued to coexist happily with its older, smaller cousin.  It’s always been an instrument that looked forward, weaving old and new together, and Nico Muhly’s wonderful Berceuse explores wonderful new sound worlds.

Caoimhe de Paor - Recorders

Elspeth Robertson - Recorders

Throughout the ages, music and magic have been intrinsically linked. In this programme Palisander explore music’s historic relationship with the wider magical spectrum: including elements of mathematics, philosophy, nature, religion and the occult. The repertoire varies from surviving 13th Century hymns to new compositions for the group based on surviving melodic fragments noted by Renaissance astronomers. Alongside composers such as Hildegard von Bingen, J.S. Bach and Anthony Holborne, the programme additionally includes exciting new arrangements created by Palisander of composers rarely heard on the recorder, such as Tartini. Palisander’s imaginative staging and presentation, combined with atmospheric employment of extended techniques, creates as magical experience for the audience!
