You’re invited to another free concert sponsored by our wonderful friends at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions at the University of Queensland.
AYRE, CAPRICCIO, FANTASIA
6.30pm, Friday 15 December at the UQ Art Museum (formerly Mayne Hall)
and you are invited for drinks from 6pm. Places are limited, please register for your free ticket at
The concert is meant to reflect the current exhibition at the museum, which is
Ecstasy: Baroque and Beyond
Well since Baroque is our thing, we won’t be going beyond, no thank you! But we will try to reflect the theme with music from the seventeenth century in stylus phantasticus, an ecstatic and rhapsodic style of the time before Bach, Mozart and co. introduced their clear, ordered structures. It’s mostly Italian music, but there will also be music by one of our favourite original English geniuses, William Lawes, and also a rare performance of one of Biber’s “Mysteries of the Rosary” sonatas.
Hope to see you there!
