PASSAMEZZO
Music of the Restoration
An evening of music, words and song from Restoration England to partner the lecture (on Thursday 8th March at the Seven Stars Hotel, Totnes) by historian Ian Mortimer.
After years of civil war and an Interregnum, Charles II has ascended the throne…
Accounts of the period come from Pepys, Evelyn and anonymous ballads describing momentous events, including the Great Fire of 1666 and Frost Fair in 1683. With theatre songs, tavern rounds, dance music and solos for the viol and cittern, and music by Wilson, Lawes, Locke and Purcell, plus pieces from Playford.
Passamezzo gave us a hugely enjoyable concert in 2012, and we are delighted to welcome them back.

CONVIVIO
A Royal Engagement
   
Convivio celebrate the anniversary of Bach’s appointment as Kappellmeister to Prince Leopold, exactly 300 years ago. From the court of Frederick the Great in Dresden to that of George I in London, Convivio explores music from some of the most renowned baroque composers working at the royal courts across Europe, alongside lesser known works from composers including the Bach family, Handel, Hasse and Telemann.
Formed in 2016, Convivio features students and alumni from the Royal College of Music, including former KEVICC student Katie Cowling. The ensemble has performed at venues across London, including St George’s Hanover Square and Handel House, and as part of the Guildford Music Festival 2017.

Telemann and his Friends in Paris

Formed at the Dartington Summer School in 2013, Ensemble Moliere has already performed widely throughout the UK and Europe. In 2015 the ensemble was selected to participate in the Early Music Live! scheme at the Brighton Early Music Festival, and recently performed at the London Baroque Festival.
