TREE OF STRINGS

Saturday 22 February

6 - 8:30pm, an outdoor twilight recital

Cloudehill Gardens, Olinda, VIC

Folk and baroque music of Ireland 

Tickets: www.cloudehill.com.au

$35/ $25 (under 16)

Playing Irish music feels like storytelling, but with notes instead of words. Melodies carve out the shapes of hillsides and glens, streams and forests, and rhythms place figures into this melodic landscape to dance, sing, rejoice or mourn. With roots stretching back through the centuries, traditional Irish tunes were also part of Europe’s baroque period. Come and discover the beautiful compositions and arrangements of Ireland’s folk and baroque repertoire played on modern and period instruments by Evergreen Ensemble.

Giusto Tenducci was the equivalent of an 18th-century rock star. As a revered castrato, his reputation was second only to the famous Senesino, earning him a ‘seven-figure salary’ in London prior to traveling to Ireland and Scotland. Handsome, charismatic, and wildly talented, he inspired Scottish audiences with his virtuosity and wooed them with his tasteful performances of their own Scottish airs. This concert of rarely-performed Baroque songs, sonatas and suites explores the music of several Italians, including Tenducci himself, who composed in Edinburgh during the 18th century, in addition to Scottish arrangements of J.S. Bach and Beethoven. Performed by Evergreen Ensemble, it features the glorious voice of countertenor Max Riebl and the renowned talents of early keyboard specialist Donald Nicolson.

Countertenor: Max Riebl
