Elizabeth Kenny - Lute

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).

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.
