Houston Early Music presents Fretwork in Lachrimae
Houston Early Music
One of the world's leading viola da gamba consorts, Fretwork, brings their contemporary sensibility to John Dowland's famous collection, Lachrimae. To honor the 450th anniversary of Dowland's birth, the concert embarks on a transcendental voyage from despair to hope through an extraordinary collection of music for viols and lute based on his most famous song, Flow my teares.
Over the last 25 years, this U.K.-based ensemble has brought music old and new to audiences hitherto unfamiliar with the inspiring sound-world of the viol. For their 2013 tour, Fretwork will be joined by the incomparable British lutenist Elizabeth Kenny.
A pre-concert talk with ensemble members starts at 6:45 p.m.
