Theorbo Fantasy: old and new music for the long-necked lute
Elizabeth Kenny is one of Europe's leading lute players, whose playing has been described as ‘incandescent’ (Music and Vision), ‘radical’ (The Independent) and ‘indecently beautiful’ (Toronto Post). She is also Director of Performance at the University of Oxford and a Professor of Lute at the Royal Academy of Music. Join her for a fascinating programme bringing together work from the 17th and 21st centuries, including a new commission by dynamic American composer Nico Muhly.
